I am having some very weird problems with Illustrator CS3.
At completely random times, the software starts to think my Y and Z keys have swapped places. i.e. When I type anything or use any shortcuts, the opposite letters appear and are used.
Also from time to time, when I save a file, the filename is written in Arabic and I have to rename the file again in Explorer to correct this.
Both of these problems are random and a restart or Illustrator usually fixes both of these. But what a pain and waste of time.
Anyone else getting problems like this?
Oh, I'm using Windows Vista.
My guess is, it is related to Windows. Try to press shift and ctrl at once if the problem occurs. The keys should be switched back...
You have probably installed more than one keyboard in Windows. Shift-ctrl is the standard way to switch between them. You can change this in the Windows keyboard configuration file.
I had this problem with a German and a VS keyboard installed.
