    Thanks for the update, but now not all keybinding works :(

    I use Emacs keybindings and everything were awesome before update. Now for example in “VSC operations” popup I cannot navigate using “CTRL+N” or “CTRL+P”. It now just type “n” or “p” and search for popup items.

    Terminal do not respond on “CTRL+C”, so I cannot terminate a program, which is important. The only solution now is to close terminal session.

  4. Martti Smkok says:

    After this update alt+4 outputs 4 instead of $ when using IntelliJ Idea. $ is outputted on other applications as expected.

    Mac OSX El Capitan / Finnish Keyboard layout ( “Finnish/Swedish – (KS)”)

    I will not be forwarding this into any bug tracking software or other.

    I had to downgrade versions to solve this issue.

    The out of memory error updating can be solved by adding more memory for java through environment variables as usually.

  7. Ugonna Nwosu says:

    CTRL + C no longer working in terminal

  8. Marco Carvalho says:

    How do I update from version 2016.2.1 ? I only has the download option.
    Or where can I find a link to upgrade from 2016.2.2 w/o reinstalling it?

  9. Virgo47 says:

    I was stopped in the process by OutOfMemoryError after the patch was downloaded (Windows 10, 32bit, -Xmx512 was probably too low). But after reading first comments here, I’ll rather wait for 2016.2.4 or something. :-)

  10. Leif Olsen says:

    Please make Ctrl+C work in termnal window (OSX El Capitan) !!!!
    It stopped working in terminal window after upgrading to 2016.2.3

  11. Laurence Gellert says:

    CTL + C broken in the terminal window, have to kill -9 the app server.

    Thanks for the update. The performance problems in 2016.2.1 were totally solved!

  13. Matthew Wilson says:

    Hash # key isn’t working for me either, just inputs 3 instead. On OSX El Capitan British keyboard layout

  14. Anders martini says:

    Has anyone tried this version on Linux/Ubuntu? Seeing all these issues on Capitan makes me hesitant to upgrade, unless the problem is platform dependant

  15. Jean says:

    Ctrl-r not working too on El Capitan

  16. Ali says:

    Hi all,

    After update jsf support has problems. Idea cannot resolve the namespaces in template or decorator files and code completion does not work

  17. Rahman says:

    IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3 is freezing on Mac OS Sierra 10.12 when opening layouts in Design or Text mode. It’s done it about 10 times since I installed it today.

  18. Kristof Hermans says:

    I can’t get the | (pipe) to work in the internal Terminal of 2016.3. Using a Belgian azerty keyboard layout which requires me to push option + shift + l (L) to get the symbol.

  19. Wojciech says:

    I have the same issues with not being able to create a pipe symbol in Terminal with a German layout, using Shift+Alt+7.
