Hello out there,

I've been using eclipse quite a while.
There's one huge mystery around it for me.
When traveling with my fingers over the keyboard using lots of shortcuts it often happens that the language settings just magically change to english.
I know I am not always hitting the right shortcuts what makes me think that I change the language settings by accident. But I never figured by exactly which combination of keys I change it.
I use the german settings on windows. I figured it might be an OS problem but when restarting eclipse it all works out fine again. I figure that it has to deal with eclipse.
No one of the ecplise users know how to change this setting though they know the problem.
Is there any help out there for me?

Alt-Shift is the Windows default shortcut for changing the keyboard layout, if I remember correctly.

Try disabling this shortcut (the following is for XP):

- Start/Control Panel/Regional and Language Options
- Languages
- Details...

Now you should see that both German and English keyboard settings are installed. Either de-install the English settings, or use the button below to change/disable the key settings.
