    Recently, there were several client reports about interference between some of the default JustTrace shortcuts inside Visual Studio. The conflicting shortcuts were the ones, used for activating both of the JustTrace profilers (JustTrace.MemoryProfiler and JustTrace.PerformanceProfiler). The default keys for these commands were:
    • Ctrl + Alt + '
    • Ctrl + Alt + ;
    It appeared these combinations are commonly used for typing the following symbols: { or [ and } or ]. The issue is possible to appear only on a certain keyboard layouts (e.g. Italian, Canadian-French, etc.)

    This is already fixed in the upcoming JustTrace official release. We have changed the shortcuts to not interfere with the user environment in such ways. The new shortcuts for enabling the profilers will be:
    • Ctrl + Shift + '     -     for JustTrace.MemoryProfiler
    • Ctrl + Shift + ;     -     for JustTrace.PerformanceProfiler

    As a workaround, until the next version is out, you can change the shortcuts from inside Visual Studio by performing the following:
    1. From Tools menu, go to Options;
    2. Navigate to Environment > Keyboard;
    3. Inside the "Show commands containing" text box write: JustTrace
    4. Then find JustTrace.MemoryProfiler and JustTrace.PerformanceProfiler and remove or change their shortcuts as you want (you can also change the rest of the JustTrace shortcuts if required). Note that, you will need to remove the old shortcuts in order to disable them.
