The following bug shows up repeatedly with any version of ArchiCAD. No matter how many times I re-start the program, sometimes the keyboard shortcuts do not function. In this particular case, I have been trying to drag the element by pressing CTRL + D and then CTRL again to copy it but the CUT option appears any time I press the CTRL key. Please let me know I can fix this issue. Thank you!

Welcome to this forum anto_bg. Do you, by any chance, have sticky keys turned on?

Provided you haven't changed the default ARCHICAD shortcuts, a quicker way to drag a copy would be to use Ctrl+Shift+D.

Switching keyboard languages from English to Cryllic will kill the shortcuts.
I've also recently had this problem from time to time when I switch the keyboard language from English to Greek and then back to English. I think its a Windows 10 issue. I haven't figured out how to fix that yet.

Thank you both for your suggestions!
I think the root of the problem are the keyboard languages. I was switching constantly between English and Cyrillic. It's an ongoing issue. It used to happen with the older versions of Windows as well.

- Open "Regedit" in the Windows start menu
- Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\GRAPHISOFT\ARCHICAD-64\ARCHICAD-64 19.0.0 INT R1\KeyMode Shortcuts registry key and change the value of it from 0 to 1

Now AC will take the keyboard button pressed down disregarding the actual input character.
