Short description of error
Pressing V key in user preferences is recognized as Ctrl+V
(no, my keyboard is not broken ;) )
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Add any text to the clipboard
- Start blender
- Press Ctrl+Alt+U to open user preferences.
- Click on the "File" tab
- Hover the mouse over the first textbox (labelled "Fonts:")
- Press V key. The text from the clipboard gets inserted even though Ctrl key isn't held down.
You can also enter the textbox, and V key pastes from clipboard. Pressing Ctrl a single time solves this.
I guess Ctrl key release gets lost while holding it down when opening another window, so Blender thinks it's still down.
