Unfortunately, I'm not having any luck creating any keyboard short cuts in my Windows installation of TB9. Don't know if this is user error or a bug, but I keep getting variations of the following error message:
-- Modifier Key Required

I assume "modifier key" is referring to a CTRL, SHFT or WinCommand key.

If this assumption is correct, then I have no idea why I'm getting this error message since all the shortcuts I've tried to create have included either 1 or 2 modifier keys.

Am I missing something, or is this a big that will need troubleshooting?

Metta,

Specifically, which combinations are you using?  Typically a Shift+Character is not enough, you would need to do Shift+Ctrl+Character...

Thanks,
Matt

Thanks for your feedback, Matt.

As I indicated previously, I've tried using multiple modifier keys with no success.

> Previously, the keyboard shortcut wouldn't even be inserted into the list after entering the modifier key combination.
-- Usually the combination was Shift+Ctrl+ a letter key, for example Shift+Ctrl+O (for open)

> Today, when I tried  the Shift+Ctrl+O combination:
-- the shortcut was added into the list (unlike before)
-- but now the shortcut didn't work.

Please advise.

Which setting did you use this for?  I'll test it specifically.

Thanks,

I've had a similar issue (sounds like Patrick was able to reproduce it today).

I set up Shift-Ctrl-F as a Thought>Forget keyboard shortcut withing TB9.  
The combination shows up in the key combo column in Preference>Keyboard, as well as the popup when in the plex, right clicking on a Thought (i.e. "Forget    Shift-Ctrl-F").  
Pressing the combo doesn't do anything.  

I have not tried other shortcuts (commands beyond Forget, or different key combinations for Forget).

This is for PC version, build 9.0.147.0

Nordak,

Thanks for the follow up.  Indeed, I was unable to use keystrokes to forget a Thought after setting my shortcut to CTRL+Shift+F.  I'll document this issue for further review.

Thanks,
Matt

Apologies for the delay in getting back with you on this, Matt. At this point, I'm not certain which shortcut I was trying to create, but it may have been Attachment > Open

Thanks Metta,

I'll spend some time focusing testing this one as well.
