Shortcut Keys don't work

Hi, The shortcut keys (e.g. ctrl-C, ctrl-v) don't work in the new releases. Please fix. Thanks, Carl

Hi Carl, Thanks for your message. What has happened is your Hotkey configuration has got lost. There was a bug in some versions where this could happen in particular circumstances. Go into User Options > Misc > Hotkeys and click the Gear icon. This gives you an option to restore defaults. If you do that, then exit Burp cleanly, your hotkeys will be saved in your user configuration. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

The control+t button to toggle intercept does not work sometimes, other keys are working perfectly fine.

I mean the button is not that responsive.

I have to type CTRL+T several time for it to work

Type ctrl+t cause the other hot key to be unresponsive for a shortime.

Hi Which version of Burp and which OS are you using? How often does this happen? Are there specific steps you can take to replicate this issue reliably?

Hi Can we check a few details so we can look into this for you? - Which OS do you use? - Are you having issues with specific hotkeys? - Which tool in Burp are you using, and what steps are you taking when the hotkeys don't work?
