    For some reason, my Hammer shortcuts have become incredibly unresponsive. Sometimes I have to press the map tool shortcuts (Shift+A/E/X/C/V/B) about 8 times before the tool is actually switched to it.
    It worked fine a few months ago, but now it doesn't. Does anyone else have this issue?

    Something similar happened to me a few weeks ago.
    Next day it was all fine. I really have no idea.

    Edit: Seems that it still happens sometimes to me, but I've rather got used to it.

    Same with all the ctrl shortcuts. Gets really annoying copying one object, only for it to paste an earlier copied object :(

    Only noticed this with ctrl+c, which never works the first time, but always the second time. Thought it was just an issue of me missing the keys or something ^^

    Do you have an ati video card? I think this is a known bug, but with no fix yet..

    I always had a problem with ctrl+c. Made a habit spamming this combination before using ctrl+v.

    I've had this problem for months. For some reason it was really really bad back in... the autumn, I guess. I had to spam shortcuts literally 20-ish times on occasion. Now it's usually just ctrl+c that messes up, but it's still annoying as hell.

    Me too. Every ctrl shortcut. Might be related to ATI but probably not considering it didn't use to happen

    I'm not having this problem, for what it's worth.

    I do occasionally see my mouse click not registering, usually when I'm selecting texture faces or multiple objects. But I can't be sure that's not simply me being too gentle with the clicky click.

    Also now sometimes the esc key doesn't seem to work (like if I've got a brush selected and want to deselect). Have to restart to fix it.

    I have ATI Radeon HD4290 or something and I dont have any issues, and if I had I usually restart the hammer and SDK and then it works fine.

    This might be weird. I don't have an ATI card. :bored:

    I have a NVIDIA 8600 GT right now, but an ATI Radeon 5770 sitting next to me. Been stalling on putting it in since I'm doing a lot of mapping at the moment and want to be sure I maximize fps, heh. Once I change it out, I'll of course report if this causes the problems for me in Hammer.

    I have an nVidia 9400 GT but still get the problem so I don't think it's ATI that does it, unless it's ATI and particular models of nVidia.

    ctrl+o never works for me, other shortcuts do, however, it depends on where my mouse is
    shortcuts like alt+enter, ctr+x/c/v and a few others only work when my mouse is in a 2D view

    I'm pretty sure this is not a video card issue. During the artpass contest, Hammer was completely fine. I haven't changed any hardware nor OS since then. I was, and is still using a 9600 GT.
