claws-mail-3.17.8-1.fc33.x86_64)

In claws-mail keyboard key "k" is ignored.
Same key is working in all other applications.
So it is not a keyboard problem. :-)
Does anybody have an idea where is the problem?

TIA, Bob

Where exactly? Inside the message compose window?
In other editable GUI input fields like "To", "Cc", "Subject" lines?

That would render the program unusable, which would be very odd
given that it is used on a daily basis.

Which graphical desktop environment do you use?

It was working before. Now i'm using external editor.
Not very convenient.

Hi Bob.
Just guessing.
may be you've unintentionally assigned "k" to some menu item.
(It's just a matter of pressing a "key" while focusing the item with
the mouse pointer).
Ciao,
Angelo

Shouldn't the same behavior will be in all the other applications?

Don't think so.
The described procedure is just claws-mail stuff.

-> Preferences
-> Miscellaneous

If you've accident set a hotkey in claws-mail, it'll only apply to that
application. And most likely, only when that application's window is
active.

I've set hotkeys in (another application - OBS studio), and it meant
you could use that key when typing in it. It would have nice to hit
the space bar, for example, to switch between cameras. But doing so
meant you could use the space bar to type a space in its text editors.

uname -rsvp
Linux 5.11.21-100.fc32.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri May 14 18:03:50 UTC 2021 x86_64

Boilerplate: All unexpected mail to my mailbox is automatically deleted.
I will only get to see the messages that are posted to the mailing list.

Preferences:Plugin:Notification:Hotkeys: DISABLED

Preferences:Miscellaneus:Enable keyboard shortcuts: DISABLED
This was before enabled. Now it is disabled.

The problem remain the same.

Creating new user and selecting different WM, solved the problem.
I'm apologize to disturbing the list. It should be done before i asked for help.
Now is my turn.

Best regards, Bob

Creating new user and selecting different WM, solved the problem.
You could compare the contents of ~/.claws-mail for new and old
users and perhaps find the specific setting that screws it up.
