    • True. I have created two customer incidents in the past about it. SAP has been unable to reproduce or fix the refresh problem although I have provided all the required details. They even had me upgrade my graphics card drivers. Nice to hear that we aren’t the only ones suffering from it.

  • Please, can someone help me out?

    I need to adjust the Keyboard Shortcuts. I want to remove the “ctrl”+”left” and +”right” Keys to move the tabs, since I need them to navigate through Text word by word. Adjusting the NwbcOptions.xml (e.g. to “Alt”+”left” and +”right” does not have any effect. 🙁

    Any ideas?

    • Hi Markus,

      could you show me your changes in the .xml-file please.

      <!– 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 –>
       

          <!–   <Nwbc40Commands>

              <NwbcCommand>
      <ID>FocusSpeedBar</ID>
        <Key>L</Key>
      <ModifierKeys>Alt, Control</ModifierKeys>
        <Description>Focus on Quick Launch/Search Bar</Description>
              </NwbcCommand>
              <NwbcCommand>
      <ID>CloseCurrentTab</ID>
      <Key>W</Key>
      <ModifierKeys>Control</ModifierKeys>
      <Description>Close Tab</Description>

      ….

      • Hello Sandra,

        thanks for the fast reply. I found that documentation in the net, but maybe I’ve done something wrong. Find below the two Versions of my config-file, non of them worked so far:

        Version one – Change the Modifier-Key to “ALT”:

        <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″?>

        <NwbcOptions>

          <NwbcCommand>

            <ID>MoveCurrentTabLeft</ID>

            <Key>Left</Key>

            <ModifierKeys>Alt</ModifierKeys>

            <Description>Move Left</Description>

          </NwbcCommand>

          <NwbcCommand>

            <ID>MoveCurrentTabRight</ID>

            <Key>Right</Key>

            <ModifierKeys>Alt</ModifierKeys>

            <Description>Move Right</Description>

          </NwbcCommand>

          <SingleOptions>

            <ShowSystemInfo>True</ShowSystemInfo>

            <ActiveConnectionGuid>xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxx</ActiveConnectionGuid>

            <Theme>BlueCrystal</Theme>

            <AutologonMode>False</AutologonMode>

            <ShowTechnicalNames>True</ShowTechnicalNames>

            <ShowSystemInfoInTabTitle>True</ShowSystemInfoInTabTitle>

          </SingleOptions>

        </NwbcOptions>

        Version two: remove the key completely:

        <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″?>

        <NwbcOptions>

          <NwbcCommand>

            <ID>MoveCurrentTabLeft</ID>

            <Key></Key>

            <ModifierKeys></ModifierKeys>

            <Description>None</Description>

          </NwbcCommand>

          <NwbcCommand>

            <ID>MoveCurrentTabRight</ID>

            <Key></Key>

            <ModifierKeys></ModifierKeys>

            <Description>None</Description>

          </NwbcCommand>

          <SingleOptions>

            <ShowSystemInfo>True</ShowSystemInfo>

            <ActiveConnectionGuid>xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxx</ActiveConnectionGuid>

            <Theme>BlueCrystal</Theme>

            <AutologonMode>False</AutologonMode>

            <ShowTechnicalNames>True</ShowTechnicalNames>

            <ShowSystemInfoInTabTitle>True</ShowSystemInfoInTabTitle>

          </SingleOptions>

        </NwbcOptions>

        • Hi Markus,

          File for changing/creating: C:\ProgramData\SAP\NWBC\NwbcOptions.xml

          I’m also change Ctrl+D keyboard shortcut for duplicate strings in abap editor.

  • after installing SAPGUI 740 PL-5-2 and NWBC-5.0 PL9 (update from SAPGUI 740 PL-3-1 and NWBC-5.0 PL9), all my System-Information entrys are lost !!

    both SAPGUI and NWBC did not Show any system-entry 😡 😥

    • Hi Christoph,

      This definitely should not be happening. This is not a generally known issue. Can you please open an OSS message? This is the most efficient way to get an answer.

      Best wishes,

      Julie Plummer.

    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

    .. 
    ..
     <Nwbc40Commands>
        <NwbcCommand>
          <ID>MoveCurrentTabLeft</ID>
          <Key>Left</Key>
          <ModifierKeys>Alt</ModifierKeys>
          <Description>Move Left</Description>
        </NwbcCommand>
        <NwbcCommand>
          <ID>MoveCurrentTabRight</ID>
          <Key>Right</Key>
          <ModifierKeys>Alt</ModifierKeys>
          <Description>Move Right</Description>
        </NwbcCommand>
      </Nwbc40Commands>
    </NwbcOptions>

    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..
