Hi all! After deaktivating KHotKeys daemon, the keybord shortcuts configured in kate work almost everywhere. "Almost", because kmail ignores the custom defined shortcuts: These two are accepted by kmail (defined in .trinity/share/config/kdeglobals): "Undo" -> <Ctrl>+Z "Redo" -> <Shift>+<Ctrl>+Z This one is ignored by kmail (defined in .trinity/share/config/katerc and .trinity/share/config/kwriterc): "delete line" -> <Ctrl>+Y Kmail uses the "extended editor component" - I think it's the same as kate and kwrite use. Funny thing is, the "default" settings are accepted, that is kmail accepts these: "split line" -> <Ctrl>+Y "delete line" -> <Ctrl>+K Any ideas?
