How do I get rid of that @!%#$%@%^# annoying "Keyboard Shortcut Conflict" pop-up????

This "Keyboard Shortcut Conflict" pop-up in Creo 4 makes me want to throw things.  I checked and I wasn't able to find any way to get rid of this stupid $#&*^.  Any ideas?

do you mean that even when clicking Use this shortcut for mapkeys > OK, when you type "x", the menu pops back?

Hi,

add following option into config.pro file ... it looks like it turns system single character shortcuts off.

enable_single_char_keybrd_short no

 

Also you can follow File > Options > Customize > Keyboard Shortcuts > Category: All Modes,

remove unwanted shortcuts and export settings into ui file for later usage.

Similar type of rant:

One of the biggest pains is the one key short cuts which eliminates any mapkey starting with that one key.

 

... by the way, PTC is here to "help you".

I tried the setting Martin suggested and it didn't work.  I was able to "Remove All Conflicts With Mapkeys", but it's still a pain.  I don't want that warning to ever come up in the first place.

What's to say they won't help us more and give us more keyboard short-cuts that conflict with our re-written mapkeys.

Oh, they will.  It's for our own good you know...they know what's best for us....  LOL

 

I think one of the main problems is that they've gone to a global, network-based install, so, there ARE no local config.pro and customization.ui files except the ones I have.  And those only overwrite SOME things.  Fo instance, they use the worthless "default" layer scheme, and so I now get new layers popping up whenever I create a feature....and then I'm stuck deleting the layers time after time.  To my knowledge, there is no "setting" to turn off that garbage, except in the config.pro file that resides on a network I don't (and shouldn't) have modify access to.  The Creo 3 install had local copies so I was able to edit out what I needed to to prevent these issues.  So, I've pestered IT for a "custom" install, and hopefully that should cure all or a lot of these problems.
