I work with Studio 2015 and I have a problem with the first letter of each segment I translate. Almost every time I type the initial capital letter of a segment, Studio does as if it was a shortcut and opens, according to the letter, the symbol panel, the online guide, or moves to some of the controls on the top toolbar (and of course does not type the letter). It is extremely annoying and I lose a lot of time. I can't understand why this happens, in the list of the shortcuts there are no capital letters included (they are all preceded by ALT or CTRL).
Did it ever happen to any of you? What can you suggest to solve this issue?
Thanks a lot

Probably a stuck CTRL or ALT key May 10, 2017

Hi Alessandra

I have seen this happening a few times and it affects not only Studio but all applications on the PC. The reason is usually that the CTRL or ALT key is stuck, either physically or softwarewise.
I suggest to try to depress these keys a few times to see if it solves the problem. You may also try the command "Reset window layout". If none of these solve the problem, a reboot of the PC should get rid of this annoying problem.
