Specifically the keyboard shortcut for inserting a glossary term. The term is visible in the glossary window and highlighted in the source, but when I press Ctrl+Alt+0 which is the standard shortcut for inserting glossary terms according to all help articles, nothing happens. I press it until I am blue in the face - nothing! I thought that maybe this action results in just copying the term to clipboard and I must use Ctrl+V thereafter to insert it in the target segment, but this did not work either.
Please help.

Check in preferences Jul 11, 2016

Hi Tania,

I'm not sure what the default is set to, but you can check in your preferences under Shortcuts. On Mac, it looks like it is Cmd+0.
In any event, I never use it but instead rely on auto-suggest (type the first letter of the target or source, then press enter or eventually select term with arrow keys if more than one proposal and press enter).

If you want to use a shortcut key, try reassigning it.

Kind regards,

John

Thanks Tania,

Not sure but sometimes problems arise because of different physical keyboard layouts combined with virtual layouts depending on the language.

In any event, I'll notify developers about the discrepancy.

Kind regards,

John
