I've been a windows user for a long time, and I hate the ⌘ shortcuts for stuff. Since I only use my Mac for work stuff, I figured I'd just redefine the App Shortcuts from the keyboard menu so I could use control+C, control+V, etc.
This works fine in almost every app I've tried, except Microsoft Outlook. There control+C works, but control+V does not. I can copy selected text just fine, but Paste exhibits some weird behavior.
Hitting control+V causes the cursor to jump several lines down and scroll the e-mail. I can continue hitting control+V until the cursor reaches the very end of the e-mail, at which point I can now paste again. The entire time, the menu shows the correct shortcut:
The Edit menu does not flash (and no other menu flashes either) signaling that a keyboard shortcut in that menu has been pressed until the cursor is at the very end of the document.
Unsurprisingly, ⌘+V also doesn't work because that's not a valid shortcut anymore.
Has anybody found a solution for this issue?
Edit: Turns out it's not just Outlook that has this issue. Several OSX applications will view CTRL+V as a "scroll down" operation.
