F2 preview not working

Postby Acuario » Mon Jan 27, 2020 9:17 am

Version 16.0 (
The F2 preview does not work.
I also tried re-assigning the preview key to Ctrl+F2 but that doesn't work either so I set it back to just F2 which still fails to work.

Even stranger;
With a .html file nothing happens
With a .css file it opens a new tab with prev0~.htm file
With a .js file it opens the file in notepad

You say [F2] doesn't work. Do you get the same error if you click 'Tools' and then select 'Preview' ?
