My F5 (continue)/F10(Step over)/F11(Step into) buttons are not working when I am in debugmode.
I have allready restored the setting under "Import and export settings" but the problem isn't fixed.

Does someone have an idear on how to fix this?


I'm using windows 7

Is there an "F Lock" key on your keyboard that has accidentally been turned off?

I have tried it with "F lock" on and off. Both times it doesn't work.

Hello Wouter,

Did you mean when we press F5/F10/F11, no breakpoints get hit? Have you tried clear all the breakpoints and reset  them all?

Any news on this?

Does debugging using the menus work?

I was using Apple Desktop and was facing a similar issue.

Every other short key seemed to be workign except f10 and f11.

I went into tools->options->keyboard -> show commands containing i typed stepover and gave f3 as the new shortcut and it works just fine.

:) hope this helps

Please check your other applications/software installed that might have been mapped to the same Function keys
