Eclipse crashes when cutting text in arbitrary editor [message #511366] Mon, 01 February 2010 07:54 Go to next message

Hello,
I have a very strange behaviour when trying to cut arbitrary text with
pressing Ctrl+X. In any editor Eclipse immediately saves the workspace
and closes directly after pressing Ctrl+X. After restarting an instance
the text desired to cut still is there - so it wasn't cut. I'm using
Eclipse Modeling Version 3.5.1 Build M20090917-0800 and JDK 1.6.0_17 on
a Win 7 (64bit) machine. First I thought that it is a bug in the
implementation of some editors I wrote but then I recognized that it
happens in other editors (Java, Manifest), too. Does anybody know this
strange behaviour and has some hints for me?

Are you sure you don't have Ctrl-X bound to shutdown?

David - it's kind of embarassing for me because you were right. My
excuse is that I've never reconfigured the default keystroke settings of
Eclipse. So it must have been a new stroke in Galileo. The default
setting was that Ctrl+X has the "exit application" functionality in
scope of windows. But why the hell is this? I don't know why but this
default setting covers the Ctrl+X setting for cutting text. Well, thanks
David for that hint.
