"I had a quick question related to NodeBox. I'm on version 3.0.52 using it on windows (10). This version has some wierd keyboard shortcuts. For eg. save is Meta+S. I have no clue what that is. The previous version (3.0.51) was better in that regard. Could you tell me if there's a way to change those shortcuts or download the previous version from archive?"

This is a known problem:


Frederik is aware of it but has not committed to fixing it anytime soon. Meta used to refer to the windows key, but that no longer works. On other systems meta used to map the to ALT key, but I assume you've tried that. If Windows 10 has any special keyboard settings for disabled users, you might be able to leverage that. In a previous post I also suggested trying a shortcut key remapping tool:


I don't have access to a PC and have not been able to confirm that this approach could solve the issue. If a PC Nodebox user out there has been able to find a workaround to the shortcut key bug, using this or any other method, PLEASE respond here so we can share it.

Failing that, plan B is to download the previous version (3.0.51). This version suffers from the copy-paste bug and on Macs does not allow the creation of movies (you can export range instead), but it may be the lessor of two evils for PC users. The links to download previous versions of Nodebox can be found here:


Sorry about this, Freny. This has been a major nuisance for Windows 10 Nodebox users for over a year now. Please let us know when you make any progress on this.
