Hi dauduong,

it seem that work fine with my side.

Have you try to reset option and try again?

Michael

It doesn’t work for me either. It didn’t work in 6.7 and it doesn’t work in 6.8. I always use the menu. Please note that I access Toad over RD on a windows 2008 R2 VM. Could that be the reason why it’s not working?

Dear Michael,

I’ve done the reset and it is working again.

Steps:

Tools > Environment > Keyboard

  1. Change: Current keyboard scheme: Default

  2. Click on the link Restore Defaults (Note: This is going to wipe out all the existing settings not just the keyboard related settings)

  3. Click on the Button Apply

  4. Change: Current keyboard scheme: Management Studio

  5. Click on the Button Apply

This seem to work for me, I am on Windows 10 Physical PC, not Virtual Machine.


HI costabas,

Have you try to reset or change shorcut option?

Michael

Hi dauduong,

Good to hear that you can work well

Michael

Please note that following the instructions from the other poster, specifically step 2, is going to wipe out all the existing settings not just the keyboard related settings. Luckily I had some minimal configuration done.

I did set the Keyboard Scheme to Default (without resetting defaults) and now the shortcuts work.

Update. Restore Defaults wiped out my SQL Recall history. So my advice is don’t do it.

Hi costabas,

Thanks for your sharing.

yes, pls try to set the Keyboard Scheme to Default or refresh option again.

Michael

I am still finding that now and then the keyboard short cut is not working.

I have bought this license (from v6.8, I am running into so much trouble).

I think this build is very buggy.

Keyboard shortcut intermittently not working (Very annoy)

Intellisense not working (Very annoy)

Snippet is not working (Very annoy) - Reported.

SQL Format is only working, when you connect to SQL Server.

I am doing a lot of query now from Visual Studio Code (Light and Fast).

I don’t know when the bug fix will be release. I am really desperate on this.

Closing and Re-Open (fixed intermittent keyboard shortcut not working)

Hi dauduong,

Did you mirgate from v6.7 ? or just start v6.8 with refresh ?

Do you mind to send us your Support Bundle files to us and hlep us to investigate this issue?
