    Hi Chami
    Since yesterday, my trial HKT has not been appropriately responding to keystroke editing. What do I need to do?

      Hmmm... could there be a typo in edited plugin?

      Here's what you could do to see if that's the case: select a new profile
      from "Kit > Profile" menu on the top right-hand corner. If Keyboard
      Shortcuts / Shorthand are working in that profile, the ones in your
      default profile might have a small typo or syntax error.

        I tried all the other profiles, same results.

          Can you give me some more details? Which menu option are you using when
          you say Keystroke Editing? Is it "Tools > Keyboard Shortcuts?" If you
          have steps to reproduce what you're experiencing it'd make it easier for
          me to figure out what might be the problem.

            I was using the Trial version profile, and change to the other five (5) profiles with no solution.
            I didn't use any shortcut or plugin. Just normal editing of the css code attributes, like "left", "top" for 'subscript-underdots", but suddenly stopped responding with appropriate responses.

              I'm really sorry I'm not understanding your question. Switching between
              reading code and reading natural language seems to mess up my brain :)

              Could you please explain again to this bird brain step by step what's
              happening? What are you typing/pressing and what is it suddenly not doing?

                I was using the Trial version profile editing, changing numbers of css attributes "left", "top" etc, say from 90.00px to 97.00px, when it suddenly will not respond properly to typing. I tried the other six profiles, Testing, Work, Home, School and Plugin profiles after your recommendation. It didn't have any effect.

                  At first I thought this may have been related to editing Keyboard
                  Shortcuts or Shorthand. So changing the profile was a way to check if
                  that was the case.

                  Since you haven't changed any of those shortcuts, I don't know why it'd
                  suddenly not respond to typing. It may not even be related to HTML-Kit
                  itself but without details on how to reproduce this I have no clue I'm
                  afraid.

                    Whenever I increased css attribute "top" by 7px, it used to tab down about one enter-key spacing as it should be. But when I do that now, It doesn't, but duplicates half way down thus blurring the output on the preview screen. It does respond somewhat, but not appropriately as it should. This happens on the preview screen, not the keyboard.

                      Are you saying that the way your CSS comes out in the preview is not
                      what you expect?

                      You're not really having any problems typing in HTML-Kit editor itself?

                        No. I have no problem with the keystroke typing in. It is the representation output on the preview screen that is faulty. It duplicates and blurs instead of coming out as a single line displaced as the "top" value amendment dictates.

                          Oh man... how could I ever guess that from a title like "Unresponsive to
                          Keystroke Editing?" :)

                          Chances are this isn't a HTML-Kit problem but if you'd like to post the
                          URL to your HTML+CSS (or upload a test page to your website and post the
                          link) we can take a look at your CSS.

                            I've been following this thread. It would be nice if Yomi would post a
                            couple of screenshots, one before the CSS edit and one after showing the
                            "duplicates and blurs."

                                I just saw them. It doesn't look like a HTML-Kit issue.

                                You could try pressing F8 to preview your page in the default browser.
                                It may preview the way you expect in some browsers but not in others. If
                                you prefer not to post a link to a test page, you might want to check if
                                there are any issues with the framework/layout.

                                OK, I, of course, don't see those. Sorry.
