I just noticed that when using CTRL+[0-9] to quickly add the lookup results from TM/TB, most of the times something else gets inserted in the target segment (even in different languages)... Double clicking on the lookup result works as expected.

Anyone else has been experiencing this?

P.S. The MQ version I'm using is 7.8.164

Interference with other shortcuts? May 17, 2017

I've also experienced strange phenomena with a shortcut in I-don't-remember-which-program only to realise that the same combinations were used for several applications, including some running in the background.
I seem to remember that particular shortcut interfered with a Dragon shortcut.

Try exiting all background apps and see whether this behaviour changes.

Hope it helps.
