Change of keyboard shortcuts doesn't work in TOAD 14

Hi all,

when I delete a keyborad shortcut in TOAD 14 and apply changes, the shortcut does still work. Also the change of keyboard shortcuts does not work at all. For me this is a very important feature because I apply some changes of the shorcuts since many years and use them very often and blindly. If this feature does not work, TOAD 14 for me is an absolute no-go.

Did anyone else also take notice of that bug?

Best regards,

Hi Rainer - I'm not able to reproduce. I've tried both 32/64-bit Toad 14. Below are the steps I tried. Is there a specific short-cut key combination/window that your seeing the issue with or is is all you've tried?

  1. Options>Toolbars/Menus>Shortcuts - Selected Workspaces>Save Workspaces
  2. Pressed [Ctrl]+Q and [Apply]; Closed Options Window
  3. In Editor - Pressed [Ctrl]+Q - Workspaces Dialog opened (shortcut worked)
  4. Options>Toolbars/Menus>Shortcuts - Selected Workspaces>Save Workspaces
  5. Pressed [Delete] - Shortcut removed; Press [Apply]; Closed Options Window
  6. In Editor - Pressed [Ctrl]+Q - Workspaces Dialog didn't open, as expected

Hi Dennis,

with the configuration shown in my little screenshot below I would expect that a statement in the editor will be executed. Instead of executing the statement the SQL recall opens, which is originally connected to the F8 shortcut (in my configuration the SQL recall shortcut is deleted). I can reproduce this after uninstalling TOAD 14, reinstalling it, closing it, reopening it, ... as often as I want.

Best regards


We see it with that example, thanks. I'm investigating now and will log the defect once I have more info.

Thanks Michael. I know that you guys at Quest always do a good job.

Maybe there will be a fix version 14.1 or something like that? Waiting for V. 15 would be quite long...

Best regards

I see the cause and have logged the issue. Are you a beta user or are you willing to become a beta participant? This item will be in the next sprint and will be fixed in beta ASAP.

Sometimes I am a beta user, but rarely. I don't want to update the stuff every two or three weeks...
So it seems I have to skip the whole version 14 and wait for 15 if there won't be a hotfix :cry:

It's logged and on the radar. Toad 14.0 is only a few days old now and we compile a list of issues in the beginning and discuss/prioritize defects as they become apparent. We allow for a little user adoption time with a new release to get a feel for the environment.

Hello Michael,

I'd just like to inform you that the issue still exists in TOAD Beta.

Best regards,

Similar to Rainer, I changed the following keybindings, which used to work in Ver 13:
Execute Statement from F9 to F5
Execute as Script from F5 to F9

F5 still runs Execute as Script, instead of what I selected (Execute Statement).
F9 still runs Execute Statement, instead of what I selected (Execute as Script).

I am on version:


Sorry to have to say that, but I am very disappointed about the new release The issue with the not-working change of keyboard shortcuts still exits in this new version, so it is again absolutely worthless for me :frowning:
I can't understand how / why this could happen, and it seems I have to wait for a new version some months again :frowning:

It's fixed in 14.2 beta. You can get that now. Here.

Sorry John, it is not fixed in 14.2 beta. The issue still exists, I checked this right now.

Furthermore I wonder how this can happen. I reported the bug months ago and Michael wrote that it is on the radar and will be fixed in one of the next betas. This was related to 14.1 beta, and now we are at 14.2 beta... :cry:

I did put a change in to keep Editor shortcuts up to date with changes made in options.
However, I see that this specific example, SQL Recall, was excluded. I am fixing it now.

It's also Execute, that means, I want to change F8 and F9

You'll be able to switch them next beta, which should be on Monday

Yep, changing keyboard shortcuts works again in the latest beta :+1:t2: Thanks!!! :smiley:

You're welcome. FYI, I accidentally caused these two problems with the recent shortcut changes, but they will be fixed next beta.

Now there's the next little issue with the keyboard shortcuts in the latest beta. Changing for example F8 and f9 works, but with the next restart of TOAD, the default shortcuts are restored.

Additinioal information: In the settings it looks like F8 and F9 are still changed after restart, but the behavior is like default.
