    Ctrl+Right Arrow stopped working???? (OL 2007)

    Help!
    I've just noticed that I can no longer move the cursor forward one word using the control-right keys!??

    This is infuriating, as i use this to move around a lot!

    This has happened at the same time on both my work computer and my home laptop, which are sync'd using my IPAQ and google calendar, but otherwise are quite separate installations!?

    I can use shift-ctrl-right to select the next word, but ctrl-right does nothing! (it doesn't work anywhere in outlook - in the calendar or text fields) all the other direction arrows still work, and the right arrow works on its own.

    this is only an outlook problem - it works in word still.

    anyone know how i've managed to reassign this keystroke without knowing it?
    i've tried rebooting but that made no difference.

    Have you updated any software recently? How about added new software?

    google calendar sync comes to mind. i guess i can try uninstalling that.
    it's certainly the one that springs to mind as recently added to both computers.
    such a weird symptom to try and look up in help or search engines.
    I can't find any way of customising keystrokes in OL?

    FIXED!

    it was aladdins categoriez. - I was trialling it for getting my categories cleaned up now I have to sync my OST and PST files via pda instead of copying the pst file between computers.

    Now to work out why it was happening and whether i can fix the symptom and still use categoriez

    thanks!

    Hi again,
    yep - definitely was categoriez.
    but the good news is the guy who developed it has already replied to my emails, admitted he had some test code got through and is onto fixing it.

    cheers,
    David

    (Edited by HansV to make URL clickable - see <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>)

    and one day after me identifying the problem, it's fixed!
    The developer has issued an update that fixes my glitch.
    So I can now say that I highly recommend....

    fancy having a vendor who listens and responds to customer feedback (before I even paid for it)
