Duplicated Mnemonics in Design Studios


Design Studios gets an exception with the following message: 

Exception message:
Duplicated mnemonics in the menuItem: <path to a robot, type or snippet>

Stack trace:
com.kapowtech.lang.ApplicationError: Duplicated mnemonics in the menuItem: 14 BHI CC - C:\...\BHI C&C\Input.type
at kapow.util.gui.GUIUtil.assignMnemonicsToMenuItem(


A cause has not been determined yet due to the issue not being able to be reproduced.  


Clear the opened robots/projects by renaming  ide.systemproperties file from the Configuration folder in the Kapow/Kofax RPA application data folder (it will be recreated when Design Studios is restarted). E.g. renamed the file to old_ide.systemproperties.

Note: Versions with "Kapow" in the name will have the application data folder called "Kapow" in the Local folder of AppData while version with "RPA" in the name will have the application data folder in the "Kofax RPA" folder in the same Local folder of AppData.
