Hotkeys are working on thier own since the patch. mainly locking and look at. By just having something selected in the selected item window. and then pressing ctrl or alt without mouse clicking will still lock targets or move camera. This wouldn't bother me so much if it didn't lock anything in high sec, like gates, or other players, good way to get concorded by mistake. anyone know how to fix this crap?

This is very annoying. Can we get a fix for this please? You warp to a gate, hold down ctrl to lock the overview and it locks the gate!! It's also happening on the view as the OP pointed out.

I've reset shortcuts to default on 2 accounts ( separate client installs) and they both do the same.

it only seems to happen if the overview panel has focus though
if you click in space before holding down the control key, it does not do this. If the overview panel has focus and an object is selected ,you just warped to a gate etc, then holding down the control key will in fact lock the gate...

Game is damned near unplayable. Particularly with multiple clients.

CCP has spent the last several updates stressing the hell out of my somewhat dated hardware and now I can't even properly enjoy that. Every time I switch clients I end up zoomed in on myself or whatever object last had my attention.

In missions, managing agro just became a great deal more dificult as I keep losing my zoomed out view.

And finally, straight up survival in a bisk plus ship. One (OK two) wrong clicks and it's flippin' pod time.

Do we have any guarantees that we will be compensated for losses caused by this bug?

Same problem here. Last patch didn't help at all. Using 2 clients on 2 monitors is pain Evil or Very Mad

Dirty fix.

Deassign alt key. Reassign another key if you like.

Reassign "lock target" to another key.

leave control and alt unassigned.

I was really hoping this would have been fixed in the new patch today. Its annoying when I am in a the middle of a fight and I am retargetting with my battleship and I start locking targets with wrecks\fleet members\or something else, because I have something highlighted in the overview and as soon as I hit ctrl its starts to target what I was highlighted.
Changing CTRL to another hotkey isnt really working since I am so used to hitting ctrl for so long.

I agree, [un]lock shortcuts are broken and it's very annoying. I can understand how you can "patch" it with new shortcuts, but it would be nice to see more permanent solution.

The bug is still there and causing a lot of headaches.
Please fix it!

After a day of repeatedly targetting gates, stations, wrecks and even asteroids I can definitely say I agree this NEEDS a fix. Making CTRL cause target lock without the accompanying left-click is a ridiculous change that is not needed and we should have the option to disable it.

Please CCP, could you tell us what the reasoning was behind this fail or is it a bug you'll be fixing in the future?

This bug is ridiculous, it has annoyed me all day. Im not expecting a fix any time soon since it is still present on the test server (276337) along with the intermitent warp tunnel graphic, the dark/pixelated active weapon icons, the strip miner sound bug, the retriever sound glitch.

Same with me too... Very annoying...

I have one of those horrible feelings you get when you follow through on your flatulence, that they implemented the CTRL holding thing as a feature intentionally...
