Dear colleagues,

I was using ApSIC Xbench earlier today and everything was fine. But, after I changed some options in Tools > Settings > Layout & Hotkeys > Transfer Method, the Ctrl+Alt+Ins shortcut stopped working properly. Now, when I use this shortcut, instead of searching for the current term highlighted, as Xbench normally does, I get stuck with the last term I have previously copied using Ctrl+C. So, if I want to search for a term on ApSIC Xbench, I have to use the sequence Ctrl+C > Ctrl+Alt+Ins, instead of Ctrl+Alt+Ins directly.

Have you ever experienced a similar issue?

Please let me know if my description was clear enough, I really need help with this problem.

I have tried different settings combinations on the referred dialog box, with no success.

Thank you in advance for any help here.

Try with "Ctrl+Insert, Ctrl+Alt+Insert" Jan 15, 2014

Different editor applications may require different values for Transfer Method.

If the combination "Ctr+C, Ctrl+Alt+Insert" is working for you only than just a bit inconvenient, then I strongly suggest using "Ctrl+Insert, Ctrl+Alt+Insert" instead. You will notice that, unless Ctrl+Insert is intercepted by the editing application, this latter combination is pretty convenient because your fingers nearly do not move in the whole sequence even when it involves 5 keystrokes. You should get used to it very soon.

In the key combination "Ctrl+Insert, Ctrl+Alt+Insert" is not a suitable solution, then please let me know the editor application because different editor applications may need different values in the Transfer Method.

Problem solved Jan 16, 2014

Although I had tried to change the settings, and had even restarted the computer, before posting here, it seems the problem was solved after I tried changing the settings again.

In case you come across the same problem, the settings I am using are:

Tools > Settings > Layout & Hotkeys > Transfer Method >
Input > Copy Message
Output > Manual Paste
Automatic Substitution Output > Manual Paste

This way, the shortcuts work just like they should for me.

I hope this helps anyone in need in the future.

Thank you very much to pep, who tried to help me with my problem.

The shortcut you suggested ("Ctrl+Insert, Ctrl+Alt+Insert") did not work for me, though.
