Thanks for that eried (I sent you a donation for this)

Unfortunately the combination Ctrl-Alt-U produces the ascii character 250 (ú) on my Pc running XP.
Which corrupts the source code without careful placing of the cursor  :smiley-cry

cheers

I can't replicate the issue but, here is a file with Ctrl+U (reversed with the normal upload). Replace it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\Arduino ERW 1.0.1h

Well that works a treat for me   :-) :-)

But what's the long term solution...
I feel that the ability to set the default behaviour of ctrl-U would be the best, is this a possibility?

I could even live with ctrl-U  ctrl-U (twice) or is that pushing the standards :-)

BTW
The shortcut  ctrl-Alt-C (paste as html) seems to work ok

cheers

Original version worked for you or the switched one? I think Ctrl+Alt+U it is a very good key combination, because it is just AltGr+U, so quick to call

The switched one works very well but the cnrl-alt-u will still cause a special ASCII (250) character.

This may be a UK/European keyboard driver feature to enable access to odd characters as used in some European spellings. (not UK English)

OK, maybe. The thing is I don't want to change the default behaviours in the IDE, like if a user used the official IDE and then the modded one, everything will be the same (that's why I even uncheck all the new options, like "autoclear", "search in all tabs" etc) so everything matches with the official stuff and step/step guides.

We have to find another keycombination that works for everyone. What is the special ascii char you get? it is useful? maybe it is something in your machine like a custom keyboard distribution?

Its the character  ú
It behaves the same way on my Vista PC with a UK keyboard.

There may be something weird with that combination...check out...

If the default behaviour of the IDE to cntl-U remained as  compile & Upload, why would adding the option in your configuration file to change that behaviour to compile Upload+Open monitor be a conflict?

I'm possibly not understanding the technology limitations.

I discovered that ctrl-alt-e/u/i/o/u

will produce he characters: é ú í ó á

So its is definitely a keyboard driver 'feature'.

Because adding the preference is much more work compared to finding another keycombination.

Control+Alt+M is perfect!

Alt-GR is near M, so 1 hand required, plus Control+Shift+M opens the monitor, so it is a logic perfect choice smiley-grin

Yep that sounds good.
Graham

(I still like the 'much more work' option as the best solution one day : perhaps hopefully in the official IDE release. :-)

Sure, it is not "much" more but involves editing the preferences and the dialog. One day maybe I will start rebuilding that part.
