    When browsing the model previewer within Hammer, I cannot type with those 3 letters. They work in every other part of Hammer and in other programs. This makes it difficult to filter things like "soho."

    The only things I've done are reinstall BS resource pack and refresh sdk content.

    Any ideas?

    Are those hotkeys of some sort?

    it might be a thingy to do with mis-assigned keys and such.

    No they aren't. I'm pretty vanilla when it comes to that stuff...unless you could explain how I could have accidentally changed the keys of just the model viewer. In which case, I need to learn how to open the files to change them back because refreshing sdk content didn't do it.

    This is true for everyone, there are a few threads scattered about it already. You can copy/paste into the model browser if you need to.

    I tried copy and pasting an "h" and it didn't work. Still, I'm glad it's a player-wide problem. I did try to use the search function before I made the post.

    Yeah I have this too. Makes looking for certain models a challenge in itself.

    Dunno if it'll function as a workaround but Alt+99 is c, 104 is h, and 117 is u. (on the numpad)

    You can just type the word you want to search on notepad and cut it from there.

    I've been highlighting fragments of words from the box above the filter box (where the full pathname is displayed), then right-clicking to copy and right-clicking in the filter box to paste. That's about the quickest way I've found, although I will give Boojum's suggestion a try.
