ctrl+q override?

Hi everyone,

I use a text editor called sciTE ( which I find very useful for coding and also writing latex scientific documents.

That editor uses the ctrl+q shortcut combination for commenting out lines.

I am not sure what I did, but I somehow managed to accidentally override this shortcut, and now it won't work anymore. ALL the rest of the shortcuts still work perfectly fine, and my problem was created when I tried to add another language to my linux lite, so I suspect that I did something that cancels/overrides the sciTE usage of ctrl+q.

Any help on resolving this will be much appreciated, it is very hard to work without that important shortcut.

(another, unrelated question: can one upgrade to the newer (2.4) linux lite without a full re-installation?)

All the best,

Hi Edan,

A quick reply to your unrelated question - upgrade to 2.4.

YES, it's possible! :)

Please have a look in Jerry's release announcement:

There you will find informations/instructions under "Lite Upgrade".

Hope that helps!
