Load All shortcut doesn't work when Terminal is open #1723

  1. Create or open a Package project
  2. Put the cursor in the R console
  3. Press Ctrl + Shift + L; this is a shortcut for Load All and should emit devtools::load_all(".") to the console
  4. Open the Terminal and type a command
  5. Put the cursor back in the R console
  6. Press Ctrl + Shift + L again

Nothing happens.

This is because there is a Ctrl+Shift+L shortcut for the Clear Terminal Buffer command (left over from before I made Ctrl+L clear the Terminal instead of the Console depending on focus).

So as soon as there's a terminal instance, Ctrl+Shift+L starts being routed to it, even when it isn't visible.

I think I should remove this shortcut altogether, since Ctrl+L already does the trick.

In the meantime, users can modify the keyboard shortcut and remove it themselves. Tools / Modify Keyboard Shortcuts, type clear terminal in the filter, double-click on the Shift + Ctrl + L, delete it, and Apply.

@gtritchie's fix worked for me, but I had to restart RStudio before the change took effect. Also in my case, the terminal wasn't open and the shortcut still got hijacked.
