CTRL + Q Shortcut Not Working in

Applies to: Ephesoft Transact
Resolved in: Ephesoft Transact 2019.1


The shortcut Ctrl + Q blocks out the other fields in the validation screen and hinders the ability to edit them after using the shortcut for the first time. This occurs despite the value for the field being set to false in the application.properties file, located in [Ephesoft_Directory]\Application\WEB-INF\classes\META-INF.

Even after clearing the cache, the issue still persists.


Two different workarounds are available:

  1. Use CTRL + E with the ctrl_q_enable switch to false
  2. Manually validate the fields using the mouse and UI options.
