Does it work for other apps?
No, it does not. Just tried in Flash...no go.
Could it have gotten remapped by some other application? This has happened from time to time on PC's. Several folk on HP computers with Photoshop lost Ctrl-z, as some HP software remapped it to an HP Help screen. Stupid move HP...
Since it Cmd works with other keys, it's not likely as my problem some years ago - a smurfed Ctrl key on the left, the one I always use. New keyboard helped me, but does not seem to be a mechanical Cmd key issue for you.
Just tried in Flash...no go.
Try a non-Adobe app.
Thanks Jim. Just figured it out. Cmd+X had been changed to make highlighted text 'talk'. (probably me...and forgot to change it back after my "playing around with Mac OS X time...") Back to normal again.
Glad that you got it sorted, and that it's now working.
The remapping, that I mentioned in post #3 was about the only thing that I could think of, that would cause such behavior. Glad that it worked.
to make highlighted text 'talk'.
that's kinda' scary. Considering some of the text that I have highlighted, I'm not sure that I'd ever want such a "feature... "
Good luck, and thanks for reporting your success,
