eclipse IDE shows ctrl shortcut instead of running it [message #916716] Wed, 19 September 2012 06:59 Go to next message

I'm using eclipse IDE for JEE development (Juno release with build ID 20120614-1722) for some times now without issues, but since a couple of days, ctrl shortcuts are starting to work wrong: Instead of running the action behind the shortcut, the meaning of the shortcut is instead displayed in a popup on bottom right corner of the window (just like when pressing ctrl+shift+l, but displaying only the current shortcut). If I double-click on it (or sometimes pressing enter), the action is eventually executed, but I'm losing the context (the focus changes to the location I clicked).

It looks like the problem did not appear suddenly, but smoothly : I noticed it for a shortcut or another and did not pay any attention since it was not disturbing, but right now, every ctrl shortcut that I tried (even ctrl+space) behave like this.

As far as I tried, this happens in any context (views, editors, dialogs).

Does a configuration option allows to modify this (that I might have changed without notice), or is it a (known) bug ?

I've seen several complaints about broken shortcuts in Juno. Have you searched bugzilla (select Platform/UI) for similar reports?

Also, the Eclipse Platform forum might have more on this: http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/f/11/
