Delphi: workaround for when you loose many of the ModelMaker Code Explorer keyboard shortcuts

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/07/29

ModelMaker Code Explorer (MMX for short) stores the keyboard shortcuts in the registry.

I’ve had it occur once that somehow most (about 95%) of the shortcuts got lost.

Two thinks I learned from resurrecting the shortcuts:

  • MMX writes these settings when you exit Delphi
  • Only a few keys (with lots of values under them) store the keys.

To resurrect them,

  1. Exit Delphi
  2. Backup your registry
  3. Delete the registry keys mentioned below
  4. Start Delphi
  5. Exit Delphi

Summary of what was wrong

The values under these keys got emptied

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ModelMaker\MideX\10.0\Explorer\ContentsShortcutsEx]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ModelMaker\MideX\10.0\Explorer\DetailsShortcutsEx]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ModelMaker\MideX\10.0\Explorer\MainShortcutsEx]

Some of values under this keywere removed, but not all of them

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ModelMaker\MideX\10.0\KeyBindingsEx\BDS 9]

The values under this key were OK

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ModelMaker\MideX\10.0\Explorer\DocShortcutsEx]
