Illustrator keyboard access to menus dies off - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Hi, I'm using Illustrator CS2 in Win2K SP4. I've noticed that, sporadically, Illustrator stops responding to Alt+key shortcuts to reach menu commands. Has anyone else noticed this, and is there a workaround please? Another couple of bugs I've noticed: Just now, resizing an object via its bottom bounding box handle and holding down 'shift' to maintain the aspect ratio, Illustrator only changed the vertical size, despite the action previewing properly. On closing Illustrator and restarting, behaviour was back to normal. Text resized using the bounding box (bad habit, I know!) doesn't reflect an altered point size in the control palette. ...

    Default Illustrator keyboard access to menus dies off

    Hi,

    I'm using Illustrator CS2 in Win2K SP4. I've noticed that, sporadically,
    Illustrator stops responding to Alt+key shortcuts to reach menu commands.

    Has anyone else noticed this, and is there a workaround please?

    Another couple of bugs I've noticed:

    Just now, resizing an object via its bottom bounding box handle and
    holding down 'shift' to maintain the aspect ratio, Illustrator only
    changed the vertical size, despite the action previewing properly. On
    closing Illustrator and restarting, behaviour was back to normal.

    Text resized using the bounding box (bad habit, I know!) doesn't reflect
    an altered point size in the control palette. Click off the text and
    back on it, and the point size is updated.

    All sorts of little gremlins seem to have crept into CS2. A shame.

    Many thanks,

    David:

    The alt-key commands don't work if you're in caps-lock, could that be the case here?

    If not, try the Faqir:
