Bookmark and filter shortcuts dont work

Post by gazmoz17 » Wed Jun 16, 2021 2:01 pm

Hi,

I thought this was because conflicting autohotkey script....but Ive disabled all my scripts and shortcut keys still dont fire.

*Also when starting the program it always defaults to filter "Documents" rather than a Filter I have made. Ive tried changing in organising filters and bringing to the top but it still defaults?

Many Thanks
Gareth

Hotkeys are working fine here.
Default filter is set under Options / Home Filter:

Please note that bookmark and filter shortcuts cannot override any keyboard shortcuts defined in Tools -> Options -> Keyboard.

Could you please give an example of a shortcut key that doesn't work.

Where are you pressing the shortcut key? eg: in the search box, in the result list?

*Also when starting the program it always defaults to filter "Documents"

As horst.epp suggests, please check your Tools -> Options -> Home -> Filter.
Please make sure you are not setting the filter from the command line, eg: -filter "Documents" or -bookmark "my bookmark"

Thanks for the replies, sorry for late reply.

Argh apologies should of been able to find that default search filter myself :oops: .

Dont think I have any keyborad shortcuts in below section:

Shortcut eg.

And for book marks, I'm guessing control f wont work as its a duplicate of the above.

The only bookmark shortcut that works is control L. Control B some times but sporadic.

Tried shortcut keys both in search and results list.

Thanks

Ctrl + F is Edit | Find... (Global)
Ctrl + R is Search | Enable Regex (Global)
Ctrl + B is Search | Match Whole Word (Global)

Please undefine these keyboard shortcuts from Tools -> Options -> Keyboard

-or-

Please try other shortcut keys for your bookmarks.

For example:
Ctrl + Alt + F
Ctrl + Alt + L
Ctrl + Alt + R
Ctrl + Alt + B

Everything does not use any Ctrl + Alt shortcut keys.

Showing keyboard shortcut collisions is in development.

Argh…so I’ve randomly chosen every shortcut key that is already mapped for something else :D

No problem, makes sense now. Thank very much for your replicas.

Many Thanks
Gareth
