Did something happen to the shortcut for checkboxes?

Recommended Posts

I used to use CTRL+SHIFT+C to create checkboxes. This was in Windows 7. Recently moved to Windows 10 and the latest version of EN (6.22.3) and my beloved checkbox shortcut does nothing. Did something change? Other shortcuts, such as CTRL+SHIFT+B to insert bullet points, work fine.

I would suspect that Windows 10 has decided that it needs Ctrl+Shift+C for something and won't let it be redefined by mere software. You might need to search for ways to overcome that. But then, I'm not on the latest version of Evernote for Windows, and something may have changed.

I just updated to the current version (6.22), and I find that Ctrl+Shift+C does work to produce a checkbox, but I am still clinging to Windows 7. Perhaps it is a Windows 10 thing. Or perhaps--you know this can happen--something has temporarily gummed up the works in Evernote, and a full shutdown (File > Exit; or from Task Manager) and restart will get it working right.

No luck. I'll check after the next restart of the machine.

CTRL+SHIFT+C is used in Win 10 here: https://www.howtogeek.com/353200/how-to-enable-copy-and-paste-keyboard-shortcuts-in-windows-10s-bash-shell/

But it's not enabled by default, and I have it disabled.

Ctrl+Shift+C produces a check box for me, Windows 10 Pro.  Hopefully the restart fixes things.

Windows tends to stick to Win+<something> for its keys. It could be a different program registered that sequence. Global hotkeys are a first-come-first-served type thing. And that's not a global hotkey for EN - it's just a standard accelerator sequence (as in, it will only work in EN, not when another program has focus)

And it still WOMM! (Works On My Machine) (Win10Pro + current patchs, EN6.22.3)

Using System Configuration, I disabled all non-Microsoft Services and Startup apps. On reboot, I launched EN and the checkbox shortcut works - but only several times and then it stops working. Reboot again, same result. Strange.

I've got the option enabled that converts [] to a checkbox, so that's good enough for now.
