Control key shortcuts not recognized

Post by kcoady » Tue Jan 12, 2016 9:16 pm

Hi. I have SoftMaker Office 2016 749.1207 installed on Linux Mint 17.2 (Rafaela). No shortcuts involving the control key appear to work in PlanMaker or TextMaker. Ctrl-S doesn't save. Ctrl-C doesn't copy. Ctrl-V doesn't paste.

Alt-shortcuts work.

I'm not having any trouble with the control key in any other application.

I also use Linux Mint 17.2 with SoftMaker Office 2016 rev.749 and CTRL+C, CTRL+V and CTRL+S work properly. Which revision (Help=>Abpout) are you using? Are you copying content from inside SoftMaker programs or from another program like a web browser?

It's rev 749.1207. And (after fiddling with a few things, seeing that it works on your setup) I found the problem.

On my system, if System Settings: Mouse and Touchpad: Mouse: Show position of pointer when control key is pressed is set, Softmaker programs don't see the control key press. If it's unset, they do, and everything works normally.

I presume this isn't the desired behavior, since it's not useful and every other program I've tried does register the control key when that option is set.

The problem has been solved and should not occur anymore with the next service pack.

Dear All,

I just purchased and installed Softmaker 2016 under Linux Mint 18.3
SoftMaker TextMaker System Information
Revision: 749
---
Linux distribution detection results: [3] ; LinuxMint ; 18.3
... and ran into the same shortcut problem reported earlier by kcoady :( .

Hoping for a corresponding service pack for Linux I had a look under https://www.softmaker.de/servicepacks-alt ... and drew a blank :( .

Where do I find a service pack for Softmaker 2016 Revision 749 for Linux?

Thanks & Regards
Tom

Please download the Office version again using the download link in the e-mail with the license key you received after purchasing the Office. The download links now refer to the most recent version.
