I have just bought a new laptop computer: a Lenovo Thinkpad L580. I have installed Studio 2019 SR2.

Normally, the key combination Fn+Left is equivalent to pressing the Home key, while Fn+Right is equivalent to pressing the End key. Naturally, these are two combinations I use a lot when editing text. But, in Studio, every time I press the Fn key, the "Create Return Package" dialog comes up.

I checked and there is no keyboard shortcut assigned to this action, so I can't think of a way to stop this behaviour.

Can anyone replicate this? Are there any known workarounds or fixes?

Only trados? Aug 9

Do the keys work differently in other software?

As I said, Fn+Left is equivalent to Home, and Fn+Right is equivalent to End. Fn by itself does nothing, obviously: it is a modifier key. Only in Trados Studio it works as if it were a normal key.

Create a shortcut Aug 9

Then it might be something similar to this:

This is what I thought I'd try before posting here, but then forgot to... I will do it and let you know what happened, for future reference.

Thanks, Lincoln, for digging out this old forum post. Much appreciated.

It worked Aug 12

I confirm that by assigning a keyboard shortcut to "Create Return Package" I can now press the Fn key and nothing will happen, as expected and desired.
