CTRL-V Problem

I am having a problem with pasting text on a RichTextBox when I use CTRL-V.  When I use the shortcut, the copied text is pasted twice.  This is not the case when I use the EditPaste menu.  I tried taking away the "Ctrl+V" shortcut for my mnuEditPaste and CTRL-V worked well.   I assume that with the "Ctrl+V" shortcut included in the EditPaste menu, the paste function is performed twice.  However, without the "Ctrl+V" for the mnuEditPaste, the Edit menu does not look right.  Now the question is how can I paste texts correctly using CTRL-V with "Ctrl+V" still stated in the EditPaste menu? I tried including "Ctrl+V" in the caption but it cannot be aligned with the other keyboard shortcuts.

You can set the KeyPreview property of the form to true, and intercept the Ctrl-V key press in the Form_keyPress event and set the KeyAscii = 0 in the event so that no other code will recognize the Ctrl-V key press. Setting the KeyPreview property of the form to True enables receiving any key press by the form before any other control on the form.
