So, I don't know what strange combination of keys I managed to inadvertently hit, but I have somehow managed to inadvertently give an existing Character Style a shortcut which is triggered by a single keystroke. And not just any key… 'e'!

So if I'was typing this vry sntnc into InDsign it would look like this:
And yet if I open the Charater Style Options dialog the Shortcut field is empty.
Any ideas how to solve? (simply shutting down InDesign and reopening wasn't sufficient)
So, I have resorted to deleting the Character Style, which has allowed me to use the E key in its conventional fashion. But i'm going to leave the question up, because I'm intrigued about what I did, and want to know in advance what to do should it happen again.
Hi @puffmoike ,
did you perhaps open an InDesign document that was saved the last time from a previous version?
Had weird things like that with a customer's document once, but could not get to the reason why this happened.
