Cmd Key on mac not working within Burp v1.6.26 (Java 1.8.0_60)

The Cmd key on Mac OS 10.10.5 does not seem to be working within Burp (attempted on multiple Burp versions <=1.6.26), thus hampering the use of copy / paste / select all functions. Below are env details: java version "1.8.0_60" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_60-b27) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.60-b23, mixed mode) Any suggestions or workarounds ? Please let me know if any other details are needed. Thanks! Mukul

Thanks for this report. We're not seeing this issue happening for us. What context/functions within Burp are effected? Is it general CMD+C and CMD+V in HTTP messages, or something else?

Hi Dafydd, Thanks for looking into it. The issue was primarily within the Repeater context, as cmd key related functions (copy / paste / select all) were absolutely not working. Oddly though, they seemed to work within HTTP > Options > Edit Proxy settings context (could select / copy / paste IP address / Port in Proxy values). It may have completely been an issue on my Macbook instance, and had to perform a complete wipe-out. Potentially, some other installed application was messing with Java, and re-installing Java / Burp was not helping resolve the concern. Sorry do not have any more details, as I could not pinpoint as to what could have caused this weird behavior - in case any one else faces this issue again. Thanks for your time though! Mukul

I have had this issue for a long time, and restoring default settings fixed the issue. Burp -> Project Options -> Restore Defaults -> All Burp -> User Options -> Restore Defaults
