Hi to all, I'm newbie and I'm sorry for my poor english.
As the title says I have a problem with '(' character (shift + 8 ). A few time ago by when I press that combination on my keyboard Eclipse propose me a menĂ¹ with 2 rows:
"add to working set" "shift + 8 W"
"import" "shift + 8 l"

I hoped it was a strange shortcut asigment but even if I restored that the problem rest.

I have to say if I press ctrl+shift+8 the '(' character is printed but it's a strange behaviour.
One thing more is that all the other combination of shift+otherstuff are perfect.

Please help me. I hope I have not to reinstall Eclipse with all the plugins because it would be very annoying.

The problem is solved by entering the Windows / Preferences menu and then Gereral / Key remove commandos have SHIT + 8.

Resets and ready.

Well, even though this post is rather old, and what my comment says is already well known, my statement anyway: i found it more convenient to change the two Key sequences from "Shift+8, .." to "Ctrl+Shift+8, ..". Cool

By the way: this also helps for the problem with the "*" on other keyboard layouts, or which character ever is on "Shift+8"...

I am using Juno. I have the same problem. I looked at Window>Preferences>General>Keys and tried to change the binding of "Add to Working Set" and "Import" . But they don't have any bindings.
Every time I am trying to type * using Shift+8, those two pop up comes. I used Ctrl+Shift+8, nothing happens.
Please help me out.
Sorry for my poor English
