    Key Assignments (97/sr2)

    Does anyone know why a key board shortcut, such as alt + z, will stop working, even though they are listed as still assigned. Other key board shortcuts in the same template still operate.

    It's easy to accidentally assign a keystroke to a macro or command in a different template, or to break an assignment by deleting or renaming something. You might have to delete and re-do the assignment.

    The only solutions I can come up with are these:
    1. To delete the original macro that this shortcut was assigned to and then re-create the macro and re-assign the shortcut.
    2. Delete the shortcut, export the macro then delete it from the template, finally import the macro and re-assign the shortcut.

    I assume that meta code or some such resides in the document and has to be 'cleaned' before the problem will be corrected. But keyboard shortcuts can go astray obviously.

    Wow. There can be lots of reasons. For example, if you assign Alt+Z to something in a document & later remove that assignment so that it's unassigned, Alt+Z will remain unassigned in that document. There can be conflicting assignments that Word has to resolve. See WordArchitecture
    Cheers,
