Text editing short cuts are not working in IDEA

Answered

Hello,

       I have recently started using IDEA. While using I faced many problems with Keyboard Shortcuts including Copy, Paste, Cut, Selection (Shift+Navigation Arrow Buttons). I'm not sure why... but I had to work hard to write a simple application. can any one please help me regards to this.

 

        I am using HP Elite Work Station which was used and bought in Swedan having Swedish keyboard layout. But When I installed OS that supports English all such short cuts are working as expected except in IDEA. not sure why this is happening.

 

Thanks,

Sudhir.

Hello Serge... issue is still same key map is as expected but when I try to use the shortcut its failing. Shift+Navigation to make selection of text/lines is not working and Ctrl+C, V, Z are not working. I had to use mouse and right-clicks to use such shortcuts graphically which are increasing my development time. Please help.

Please provide the logs (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/articles/207241085). What keymap do you use? Do you have IdeaVim plug-in enabled?
