I rely on visual studio move line up and down.
Every time I update Visual Assist, it overrides them with VAssistX.ScopePrevious and VAssistX.ScopeNext
This is the shortcut shift+up-key and shift+down-key

Is there a way to stop letting Visual Assist override these shortcuts?

Can you please export your VA and IDE settings and send them to me:

VA Options -> Performance -> Export Settings
IDE tools menu -> Import and Export Settings -> Export selected environment settings

I can then import them here and see if I can reproduce the problem.

Please send me the files via email:


including this thread ID or URL in the description, so we can match it up.

I don't understand the question.

This issue came back and it's really painful.

Easy mistake to make, I just needed to check that I was looking at the correct keyboard shortcut.

Which keyboard mapping scheme do you have the IDE set to use?

Sorry, made mistake.

I meant alt+up, and alt+down is what i use to shift line up and down.

VA overrides them with scope jumping

So far I cannot reproduce. I started testing on a clean machine, where VA has never been installed before.

Then I install VA 2380

In C++ code, once VA parsing has finished, move the current line up and down works as normal. This is "Alt + Up Arrow" and "Alt + Down Arrow", not shift, as you mentioned.

Checking the IDE options dialog, no keyboard shortcuts are listed as being assigned to VAs next and previous scope commands.

upgrade to VA 2382, no change
upgrade to VA 2387, no change
upgrade to VA 2393, no change

this is what I expected, since when you install VA, VA should not replace any existing keyboard shortcuts, at least not without prompting you first about this.

Do you really mean Shift and not Alt as the modifier key here?

In the IDE Options dialog -> Keyboard settings, which keyboard mapping scheme are you using? I am working with "Visual C++ 6". It is possible this could be a factor somehow.

That's not supposed to happen.

Which IDE are you using, and which version of Visual Assist are you currently using?

Do you know if you update to each version as it is released, or occasionally update, skipping several builds in one go?
