When I start up VUE 3.2.2, and open a recent file, the keyboard shortcuts (e.g. SPACE + Mouse, ALT + Mouse) don't work.

If I open Help > About, the shortcuts then work.

If I start up VUE and just use the default new file, the shortcuts do work.

By the way - VUE is excellent, thank you for continuing to develop it. I use it regularly for preparing + giving talks.

I have also reproduced this issue. It seems that if you select the controls from the top bar you can start using shortcuts again

I can reproduce this with the latest nightly from Jenkins (, just running the jar on Windows. Easiest one to test is the rapid-prototyping tool - can't get 'r' to do anything until after interacting with, e.g. the toolbar.

I had the same issue. I read in another post that shortcuts doesn't work with CAPS. So I tried pressing CAPS (twice, cause I wasn't using it at the time) and voila! .... shortcuts works again.

Hope it will help you guys!


Note: I'm using Windows 7
