Thanks a lot for your answer!
1) Well, the first thing I did was contacting Dietmar, the author of Cubic, and he told me, that this has nothing to do with Cubic, as there is the "Alt+F4" combination to close the app and ESC for auto completion ...
So I tried your suggestion with the hotkey but I had no effect.
I guess you don't have any other idea, what could cause that behaviour?
When I am at home today I will try the ESC key with other programmes like Hollywood Designer etc. Let's see what happens then.
2) Cool! Well, I assume the updates llok in the registry for Amikits installation path? Maybe I can find the keys there and change the value. Or do you know where/for what (except "Amikit) I have to look for to find all registry keys?
Thanks and greetings!
