Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. Would you mind sharing the version of the OS & Illustrator? Do you see this behavior while working on a specific file or all? Do you have any other programs running which grab the keyboard shortcuts?

This information would help us assist you accordingly.

 

You may try resetting the preferences of the app & see if it helps.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

Hi Ashutosh

 

I am using the illustrator version 2020, O.S is Windows 10

It's happening on all the files.

No programs are running in the background.

I have tried resetting the preferences, that doesn't help.

 

Regards

Sid
