F2 Function for Calculator Pop Up

Hi Helpers,
I cannot get the calculator to pop-up when hitting the F2 key. When hitting F2 the command line in bottom LH corner of screen throw up text "View_palettes_viewcalculatoropen"...but that's it. No calculator on the screen. Any ideas?

Thanks Ian

I get the "Variables" palette (new name for Calculator palette) to open when using "F2" in the "Default workspace".

If you're using the "LTE workspace", try Variables or qc in the Command line to turn the palette on/off. As far as I can tell, "F2" doesn't work here. The Keyboard page says "Ctrl+8" is supposed to work, but doesn't. BUG

Ctrl+8 (keyboard 8) works fie for me in 2016 LTE workspace, but not in 2017 LTE workspace. F2 works fine in non-LTE mode., unless you are using the separate TC-LTE program of which I've no idea.
