Running Win7 Pro 64 SP1 and I just loaded up old CS5 and all I can say is it works as intended. Do any other Adobe apps have similar behavior like Photoshop with the same key combo? Have you tried wiping out preferences for CS5 (not ideal, but better than reinstalling), or have you tried reinstalling?
We tried to repro this issue at out end but wasn't able to . Can you try after clearing the Flash CS5 preferences and restarting Flash again ?
Further , in case you get any crash dump or logs generated , you can send that to us for better investigation.
Let me know if this solves the problem for you.
Thanks and regards,
Adobe Flash Professional Team.
Thanks Sinious and Sudeshna. Your help is very much appreciated. It is a very strange issue, and something i've never come across in my many years of using Flash.
I removed the preferences files, but unfortunately it didn't fix the issue. The problem appears to be unique to Flash, I use a number of Adobe products and I haven't been able to reproduce it in any others.
I couldn't find anything in the AMT3.log that stuck out, but here it is:
I am going to liase with our IT Department to reinstall the program, as unfortunately I do not have access to do so myself. Hopefully that will help the issue!
I know this post is quite old, but hopefully anyone else who comes across the problems the following solution might help.
I found Flash CS5 was clashing with nView Desktop View manager. Once I disabled this (by right clicking on your Windows desktop background and choosing disable) it no longer crashed on certain shortcuts.
The problem only occured for me when I used Ctrl + ; (semi-colon) for showing/hiding guides and also on Ctrl + B which would bring up an NV message box - the only way I found out what was causing the issue.
Hope that helps.
