If this has already been posted about, I apologize. I am currently running the latest mushclient version (5.06) and the keyboard shortcut for timers (ctrl + shift + 0) does not seem to work. Is this a known issue? Is there any fix for it? I've tried fresh installs to no avail. I've just been going through the Game ---> Configure ---> Timers as a workaround.

It works for me under Windows XP, and also running under Wine with Ubuntu.

You may have an operating system keyboard combination configured that takes precedence, check your keyboard settings.


  • Press Alt+Enter and then find the Timers configuration. The configuration window remembers which tab you last had open, so next time it will go straight to Timers if you haven’t changed tabs.

  • You can bind another key combination, by running something like this in the Immediate scripting window (using Lua) - that is, Ctrl+I

    AcceleratorTo ( "Alt+F8" , 'DoCommand "ConfigureTimers" ', sendto.script)

    You would need to do that every time you started the client, or make a tiny plugin to do it for you, or a very small script file which has a function that is called on world open.

Yeah, I don't think this is a MUSHclient issue. I think this is an issue with your Windows system.

I found this online: "In Windows 10, when there are two or more keyboard layouts for the same input language, pressing Ctrl+Shift switches the keyboard layout."

So maybe there's a system setting that you need to disable to prevent the OS from interfering.

You would be correct! I didn't even think about it being some random shortcut assigned in windows 10. I've since disabled it and it works properly now.
