 +====== Alt-key shortcuts do not work ======
  
 +
 +**Problem:​** ​
 +The Alt keyboard shortcut to manipulate ROIs does not work.
 +This is because the GUI uses the same shortcut for an alternative function (for example move a window around the desktop.
 +
 +**Solution:​**
 +In KDE you can change the behaviour of the Modifier Key (to alternatively listen to the Meta 
 +key).
 +Setting //**System Settings>​Window Behaviour>​Modifier key**// to "​Meta"​ (default is "​Alt"​) resolves this problem. Note that now the Meta-key (also called Win-key in some keyboards) executes the command of KDE.
 +
 +If there is a similar setting in Gnome, please add it here.
