it's confusing to me why this has stopped working for some people.. it's not on purpose.  it still works fine for me.  i will try to get it fixed for next release.

well that is doubly strange since i didn't think i changed anything since then.
does it matter what control has focus (search box or results) when you trigger it? any other clues you can figure out about if it works sometimes and not others would be appreciated.

After some debugging, the culprit is the FARR Google Calendar plugin.  In particular, it is    http://vitalyb.dcmem...ndar/versioninfo.xml.
After I disabled it, everything works fine again!

Cheers!

It's still not clear *why* the Google Calendar plugin would do this, except to punish lanux128 for something he did in a past life.

maybe Farr was punishing me for sloppiness - leaving every single plugin enabled regardless of usage. ;D

I also found the FARREnvironmentVariable caused the same trouble.  Is there a common pattern why these plugins disabled the hotkeys?

Could it be related to the C# sdk? They both are programmed in c#.
Does FarrTunes also cause that behaviour?

pursuant to my thread here, i've found out that another plugin is causing the same problem - FarrAltTab. enabling this plugin also breaks the following:

1. 'Ctrl+Alt+Enter' hotkey to open all search results.
2. '/stayopen' keyword assigned to aliases.
3. 'Launch and stay open' - either via context-menu or hotkey.

Yes, that is consistent to what I have been experienced.

Woah. I had no idea about this and yes, probably ALL C# plugins are affected.
I never used "Ctrl+Alt+Enter" so I never noticed.

Now the only thing left is to guess what functionality of the SDK causes it :(.
