[MemoQ 5.0 with Windows 7]

As I, generally, prefer using the keyboard instead of the mouse, I normally use shortcuts such as ctrl+i/u/b in order to formate text passages.

The ctrl+i/u shortcuts for italic and underlined text work fine while ctrl+b for bold text does not work at all. Has anyone experienced the same problem and knows a solution to it? Or is just anything wrong with my own computer?

Thanks in advance
Matthias

Hi Matthias,

Have you recently installed or set up a program? If it's the case, it might have a key combination that interferes with the MemoQ Ctrl+B shortcut.
I remember I used F2 to rename in Windows Explorer and it stopped working when I "told" my Babylon dictionary to use F2 to activate or something.

I hope it's as simple as this. I can't imagine what else it can be.

Good luck

JC

Neither-nor. But it is just this that was the problem. I had another program open which interfered with MemoQ. Fortunately, it is a dictionary software for English, French and Spanish which are not my working languages, so I do not use the software very often.

So thanks a lot and kind regards!
Matthias
