Hi Keith/Thomas,

A small bug, after a restore on a fresh system. They hotkeys that are restored don't work till you open the key assignment and assign the key again

Were the keys still showing as assigned, or were they blank?

The keys were showing as assigned but they failed to work. However, when I re-assigned the same keys and click apply, the hotkeys started working.

Thanks! Are you referring to the hotkeys on the Settings > HotKeys tab?

HI Keith,

The picture below shows how the CF hotkey tab looked after restoring configuration on a fresh system (Please note that CTRL+' was assigned on the previous system from which configuration is imported). However, CTRL+' failed to work, unless I edit this and again put CTRL+' and click apply.

To re-produce the error, on any fresh system install CF. Restore configuration from another system where hotkey is set as below and it won't work until you re-assign. I am attaching my configuration just as a reference to make it easier.

It's a very small bug, just wanted to point out

Strange, I can't seem to reproduce the issue on my end. Can you send me over a backup of your settings? You can grab them in the options tab with the "Export Settings" button.
