Hello Everyone,

I've recently run into a weird problem and I'd like to know if anyone can help:

I'm translating using tag editor, and when I try to get the "placeables" through the shortcut combination Ctrl + Alt + Arrow down, instead of inserting the placeable, my whole screen turns upside down. I know this is because it is set as a predefined shortcut in windows xp, and I'd like to edit the predefined windows shortcut list to get rid of the problem... but I've looked everywhere and I haven't found where to open/edit the shortcut list. Does anyone know how to do it?

Thanks in advance for your helpicon_smile.gif
Kind regards,
Paola

Thankfully, this is a common problem and one that has been solved. The problem lies with your graphics card software. See if there is an icon for it in your systray, and edit or disable the shortcuts there. Or see if there is a Start Menu item for it.

Thank you very much Samuel.

It worked just fine, as you said, they were the shortcuts assigned in the graphics card.

Have a very nice day and thanks again for your super quick help!!
