Unable to bind multiple keys to the same key mapping directive

Sep 18, 2021
I recently upgraded to V28 from V24 and I noticed that I can no longer bind multiple keys to the same key mapping directive. This has worked fine in V24 and earlier. I don't know anything inbetween.

Looking in the documentation I found this statement:

"You can bind multiple key combinations to a directive (for example, the default Paste directive accepts either Ctrl-V or Shift-Ins)."

Which implies it should work.
Is this a known issue?
Left-Ctrl V works, but Right-Ctrl V does not work on my system, for the Paste Directive.

That is because, under Take Command Tabs Configuration Dialog, I have selected the Right Ctrl key.

With this dialog open, press the F1 key to read more detail about this.

In a stand-alone TCC window, this does not apply, so both Left- and Right-Ctrl V apply the Paste Directive.

   _admin: 1
_elevated: 1

I have several like this but I will use this example:

The last one is applied, the earlier one is lost.
In V24 and earlier this worked fine, I noticed this after installing V24 and trying to do my normal command line editing

I had already assigned "copy" to something else Ctrl-c
This is the exact version I am running: 24.02.51
What version are you running?

Sorry, that was the old version I was running
This is the new version that is not working correctly:

I'm running 28.01.14. I don't know if Win 11 matters (I doubt it). You gave this example:


In my INI file, they look like this.

Ohhh, thank you so much. It used to work the way I showed, but does not anymore.
I am switching to multiple definitions on the same line and that is working.
Thanks again
