    PC version of software

    Per the help file under "Formatting a node" node:

       To copy formats of a node, press Alt + C
       To paste formats onto a node, press Alt + V

    As would be expected for a windows application, alt + v opens a menu item that begins with v, in this case the "View" menu.

    Is the documentation in error?  Is there a way to adjust the shortcut keys?

    Thanks ...

      Hi Kay,

      Confirm there is an issue as you describe...

      >>To copy formats of a node, press Alt + C

      Alt-C copies a format correctly - as does Edit>>Copy Format

      >>To paste formats onto a node, press Alt + V

      Alt-C does not paste format, fires up the View menu instead, as you say - but Edit>>Paste Format works

      >>Is the documentation in error?

      Apparently, but looks like a bug to me.

      >>Is there a way to adjust the shortcut keys?

      Possibly/probably, but since it looks like a bug could you please let us know your setup:

      e.g. I'm Win XP + all updates + Freemind 0.9.0b16 + JavaRE 1.6

      Thaanks Kay...

      P.S. Any Mac, Linux users confirm this, or is it Win only?

        Confirmed.  Ubuntu Linux 8.04 running FM 0.9.0 b17 shows the same behaviour.

    Was there ever a solution for this?   I just upgraded to v0.9.0 on windows (XP), and this problem emerged.  How can we get Freemind to pick up the alt-V and do Paste Format?  It worked in 0.8.1.

    Thanks for any help.
