When I am in English, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V works fine when I need to copy paste. But when I turn to Greek, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V and basically no shortcut almost works in Greek. So each time I have to alt shift and go back to English in order to user Ctrl+C to copy something. How can I apply this to the Greek keyboard profile?


I also realized that when using NetBeans IDE 7.4, I can copy and paste in Greek but I can't use the tonic system of the language over the words. In Aptana studio I can't use Copy and paste Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V When using gedit everything works fine. Different software use different keyboard layout settings?

Weird, I cannot reproduce this! Do you have any custom setting that you have altered that may cause this? –  hakermania Aug 25 '12 at 8:43
hmmm Not that I am sure, but I suspect that this happens in eclipse. Now that I am here typing you this message, it seems to work... but in Text Editor, and Eclipse it seems that it does not work.. . . . . –  themhz Aug 25 '12 at 13:21
Still I cannot reproduce it with the Text Editor. Weird. –  hakermania Aug 25 '12 at 13:28
maybe my eclipse and my textpad binds those keys and overides its current ability to change language? is their a way to tell? –  themhz Aug 25 '12 at 14:52
when ever I install eclipse it does that. When eclipse is not on it works also in the text editor. When I remove the program everything seems to be ok . Is there any place I can check the key bindings? Is it a Global scope place or an application scope only? –  themhz Aug 31 '12 at 12:15
