Oracle SQL Developer problem – Backspace, Enter and Delete button in editor not working July 6, 2010

Posted by sendtoshailesh in Uncategorized.

Oracle SQL Developer is independent tool which is famous now to replace various tools and Oracle has promoted this a lot with Oracle Database 11g.

While working on this, suddenly SQL Developer editor stops taking input for certain keys like Enter, Back-space, Delete and may be many more ……… I didnt reach to test every key. All of sudden this happened and then I restarted and SQL developer. but this doesn’t came back. then restarted OS then also it does not come back.

Ah…. I was feeling helpless on this. Then I tried to reach each and every page of Preference Dialog box and tried with variuos option. Hurray………. at last I reached to solution. Follow below path to exhale the problem………..

Tools -> Preferences -> Accelerators -> Load Preset -> Default -> OK

Enjoy !!!!
