Error description

  • Abstract:
    
    Shortcut keys might stop functioning in various editors.
    
    Problem:
    
    When using the JSP or Page Designer editor, Rich Page editor, or
    other XML-based editors, you may observe the Delete or certain
    shortcut keystrokes stop working.  Some examples of key binding
    failures that can occur (but not limited to)
    
     - When you work with the Rich Page Editor and are switching
    between views, the delete key stops working
    
     - Intermittent issues may occur with shortcut keys in the
    Struts Configuration Editor
    
     - Ctrl+S (Save) keystroke fails intermittently when editing
    JSPs in the Page Designer editor
    
     - Ctrl+Arrow keystroke stops working in the JavaScript editor
    
     - Delete key stops working when editing JSPs in the Page
    Designer editor
    
    Similar shortcut key problems occurred to a lesser extent after
    updating to the Interim Fix 002 for 8.5.1 which resolved related
    APARs: PM83722, PM74700, PM80908.
    
    The remaining problem(s) are related to an issue with Eclipse
    and the IBM JVM that can sometimes cause the set of active
    handlers to fail to find an existing activation, causing handler
    conflicts to occur.
    
    For more technical details, see:
    https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=395642
    
    Local fix:
    
    There is no known workaround at this time except to restart the
    product.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Some key bindings (for example, CTRL+C, CTRL+V, etc) stop to
    work after using some of the Page Designer or Rich Page Editor
    editors.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A comparison that enables priorities has been added to correct
    this problem.  The fix for this APAR is included in Rational
    Application Developer v8.5.5.
