Hello everyone

I've noticed that while Shift+Insert (paste) does work in Trados 2011, Shift+Delete (cut) doesn't. How can I get Shift+Delete to work?

Thanks
Samuel

Use CTRL-C and CTRL-V Apr 7, 2015

These are the standard keyboard shortcuts for copying-pasting to the clipboard.

I think ctr+X is what you want. I also miss Shift+Delete in Studio, I am afraid, when I want to cut and paste.

As are Shift+Delete and Shift+Insert, in all programs on my computer, except Trados 2011.

One option Apr 7, 2015

I use Ctrl-C/V/X, so I can't comment on Shift-Ins or Shift-Del in Trados or elsewhere. What I can say is that Authohotkey can fix this for you: just set it up to issue a Ctrl-X when you press Shift-Del. Of course if you don't use AHK, it might not be worth it to install the program just for this purpose.

Edit the shortcuts Apr 7, 2015

Options > Keyboard Shortcuts, and edit the shortcuts for the Copy, Cut, and Paste commands.

Edit: I just tried, and Studio doesn't accept Shift+Del as a shortcut. The only workaround I can think of at the moment is using AHK, but it would be interesting to try and figure out why Studio doesn't accept this as a shortcut.

It is probably best posting this question/report this issue on SDL Community Support.

Yup, I also found that. Ten years ago I would have fired up ResHack and edited the shortcut myself, but these days I'm pretty much at the mercy of the developers' quirks.
