Hi,

Does anybody know how to disable the shortcut to the multifarious blog in Studio 2014?

I lately got Studio 2014 SP 2 (11.2.4422.11) through the proz group purchase and the shortcuts are driving me nuts.

Whenever I get into the flow and type a little faster, various shortcuts are activated; the worst is the one to the multfarious blog website because it must be a very common combination of letters in German.

Basically, it has halved my translation speed - but I can't figure out how to disable it.

It is listed in the options under Shortcuts > Help, but no shortcut is given, even though it exists. When I type fast, I can't figure out which combination causes it; on the other hand if I try to figure it out and type more slowly, it doesn't happen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There doesn't actually... Oct 8, 2015

... seem to be a shortcut assigned to the blog by default so this is very odd. However, I would hazard a guess that if you were to assign one under the keyboard shortcuts in File -> Options then it may well resolve the problem.

Do you happen to use the ALT key when you type? Oct 9, 2015

I'm asking because the ALT key shifts the focus to the ribbon, and subsequent key presses might activate certain commands.

Are you using any program launcher, text expansion or search program (like Listary) that might simulate pressing the ALT key as part of its standard operation?

Are you using any Open eXchange apps?
