ModusToolbox™ modus-shell keyboard commands not working - KBA234105

Version: **

Question: Why do keyboard commands not work in modus-shell?

Answer: The modus-shell tool included with ModusToolbox™ software is based on the latest version Cygwin. The latest version of Cygwin does not support some keyboard shortcuts, such as Ctrl + V (paste) and Ctrl + F (find).

Workaround: Use the context menu from the Title bar and select various commands shown under Edit.


: For the paste command, you can simply right-click at the insertion point with copied text from the clipboard, and it will paste. Ensure that QuickEdit Mode is enabled under Properties > Options.
