Any other ideas on what's going on? The two threads I found don't seem to have a firm solution. We're currenlty on SP2

This is the particular setting we've setup for iProperties that worked fine in 2012:

Here's what it looks like when you actually type the letter:

Anything else I should check settings-wise that may be causing this?

Inventor 2013 SP2 Build 200
Vault Professional 2013 Build 17.1.16.0 Update 1
AutoCAD 2013 SP2 G.204.0.0
NavisWorks Simulate 2013 10.2.0.91043
PLM360

If you sort by your keys you will find that you have a number of Aliases assigned to P:

Default Inventor 2014

Default Inventor 2013

I expect that the environment that you are in is Cable and Harness.

 

You might want to choose a more unique alias like IP.

 

Please try this and let us know.

You are correct. Didn't notice that same keys could be assigned in different environments. Although I'm not explicitly in the cable/harness environment when doing this (usually just in an assembly/part environment), I can see where the mixup can occur. Will look at a different approach for this situation. Thanks for your help.
