Is there any way to disable interference between Studio and MemoQ for shortcut CTRL+K?

What happens now is that when I accidentially press CTRL+K in SDL Trados Studio (after having switched from another project I am doing in MemoQ), a preview is generated in Studio each time I confirm a segment. I can't turn this off once I've activated it through the shortcut CTRL+K, only way then is to do a repair of Studio and a few other steps (removing files from two folders, which SDL Support helped me with).

SDL Support just told me nothing happens when they press CTRL+K (they don't get a preview generation). This happened on my computer when I had my other project opened in MemoQ and my current project opened in SDL Trados Studio 2015.

Perhaps now that I have closed MemoQ, it will not happen again.

Delete shortcut Aug 31, 2017

Hi Fredrik,

Did you try deleting Ctrl+K as a shortcut in Studio? I just checked and in my system it's assigned to "View Internally Target".

To access your shortcuts, go to Options - Keyboard Shortcuts. If you then click on the Shortcut column, they will be sorted alphabetically and you can quickly find what Cltr+K is assigned to, and then either change it to something else or delete it altogether.

Change key assignments Aug 31, 2017

In both Studio and MemoQ you can change key assignments. Just make them different.
