Unable To Navigate Using Arrow Keys In SQL Developer
Last updated on OCTOBER 27, 2016
Applies to:Oracle SQL Developer - Version 126.96.36.199.83 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The cursor cannot be moved by cursor keys (up, down, left, right) in a Worksheet window. Enter nor backspace work.
Scroll lock is off.
The problem does not happen in other applications.
At the same time, cursor key navigation *does* work in SQL Developer object navigator.
The problem persists using the numeric keypad with num lock off.
Initially this was working after installation.
Re-installation did not help.
