File navigation does not work on Vista
« on: March 20, 2010, 04:32:04 pm »
I have SlickEdit 11.0.2 installed on my laptop running Windows Vista 32bit version.  For file navigation, both Ctrl+Dot and Ctrl+Comma do not work on keyboard >:( (the context menu works though).  I had older SlickEdit on Windows XP and they all worked fine.  Is this a Vista issue or it just needs some configuration to make it work on Vista?

Thanks a lot :D.

This child forum "SlickEdit User Macros" is for custom macros posted by users.
This post belongs in the parent forum "SlickEdit".

The first thing to check is whether the key bindings for Ctrl+Dot and/or Ctrl+Comma have been modified.
The Ctrl+Dot and Ctrl+Comma keys have worked fine for me on WinXP, WinVista, Win2003, Win2008, and Windows 7 (and 2008 R2).

Also, check if those key combinations can be recognized by other applications on the laptop -- it could be possible that the laptop keyboard might be wired such that those keys lock each other out, making those specific key combinations impossible to be detected by the hardware.
