CMD-D disabled or changed?


#1

I’ve used STRIP since day 1 and am using Codebook. I am thinking that my Plist file got corrupted, but CMD-D no longer works and the “- Folder” and “- Category” buttons are greyed out. Under the Edit menu, the Delete shortcut is CTRL-CMD-OPT-D. Any ideas?

Hi @myronm

Thank you for your support of STRIP and now Codebook. The hotkey for deleting a category or entry is CMD + Delete. That’s very strange that the edit menu is showing a different hotkey for you, this is what mine shows:

There’s a complete list of hotkeys here: https://www.zetetic.net/codebook/hotkeys.html

Are you running the current version of Codebook [3.0.4 (345)]? Would you mind running an integrity check (File -> Integrity Check) and see if it reports any issues?

Apparently my SYSTEM was corrupt. I went into System Preferences -> Keyboard and added Delete (delete key) and the problem was solved. Go figure. Case closed.

PS: Dropbox syncing problems also seem to be resolved. Another mystery.

Thank you,

Ron

Glad to hear the issues are resolved. Thanks for outlining the steps you took to fix it, could help other users who experience the same problem.

Have a good day.
