android – Copy/paste issue with eclipse Juno-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I am using Eclipse Juno on Mac OS 10.7.4 and Android ADT.

Some times when copying and pasting code the copy and paste event take place at the previous file that I had opened on the Editor.

Is there a fix out there for this problem?

How to solve:

I changed Default modifier key to alt .


“In the newer report, Jun Luo suggested on Monday to unbind the keyboard shortcuts for cut, copy, and paste in Eclipse Preferences -> General -> Keys. I tried removing the Ctrl+C binding and all week I have not experienced this issue, so I am calling it fixed. My Mac-using coworker has not reported the issue recurring since removing the ⌘+C binding, either.”
