Description xdark 2008-08-06 13:38:15 UTC
I'm using a french (AZERTY) keyboard layout. When I type anything inside Netbeans everything works fine except for
shortcut which have a QWERTY keyboard layout. For example I must (based on an azerty layout) press CTRL+W to undo,
CTRL+Q to Select All ... Very disturbing.

not sure if this can be fixed on NB side. As a workaround may help creating your own keymap - you can override default
shortcuts Tools|Options|Keymap. PLease reopen if this does not work..

Very painful workaround. And it also means the shorcut displayed won't be the key I have to press.
Comment 3 tbodt 2014-05-02 23:43:57 UTC
This happens for all keyboard shortcuts involving CTRL in all non-QWERTY layouts.
