I have both an internal and external keyboard but the key-repeat has stopped working. I've tried changing both 'Key Repeat' and 'Delay Until Repeat' as shown below but no setting seems to be helping.
This is a brand new mac (5 weeks old).
Well it looks like there are a couple solutions:
Option 1. Enter this in terminal:
Hmm, on OS 10.8.2 the command given above seems to have no effect (keys do repeat in terminal window whether true or false is used in this command. Keys do not repeat in Word ot TextWrangler whether or not the variable ApplePressAndHoldEnabled is true or false). I also don't know why my keyboard has suddenly stopped repeating (particularly as the system preferences are still set for repeat).
