Hello everyone,

Just a quick question, is posible to disable (or change) keyboard shortcuts in NWBC?

I use very often Ctrl+left/right to move across text, but in NWBC that shortcuts are to move tabs.

You can try to change shortcuts as described here:

At least it helped for me. I changed Ctrl to Alt:

      <Description>Move Left</Description>
      <Description>Move Right</Description>

Hello Andrey,

I can't set this settings, it is not allowed in NWBC6.0

Just try to place nwbcoptions.xml in C:\ProgramData\SAP\NWBC )

nwbcoptions.xml (1.3 kB)

It doesn't work.

In the template file from NWBC 6.0 installation folder there is a comment:

<!-- You can change key plus modifier keys combination for defined shortcut commands. Do not change ID.
The following shortcuts are valid for NWBC 4.0 and NWBC 5.0 -->

I think they just forgot to add "NWBC 6.0" in the comment.

In my NWBC 6.0 PL8 installation:

1. without nwbcoptions.xml in C:\ProgramData\SAP\NWBC . Standard behavior.

2. with nwbcoptions.xml placed in C:\ProgramData\SAP\NWBC . Redefined behavior.

It works, I was trying with file in %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\SAP\NWBC

Thank you so much!


Hi everybody ,

I looked at many sources to change the keyboard settings, but none of them did not work in NWBC 6.5. I could not change the combination of Ctrl + Left and Ctrl + Right..

I added following codes on the this location NwbcOption.xml file . C:\Users\Yunus\AppData\Roaming\SAP\NWBC\NwbcOptions.xml


After that , I changed Personel Settings like that.

But when I NWBC opened , It show error like that . (Key parameter can not be null. ) But I Filled it .. And It didn't change any things..
