I had the same problem and switched everything to 10 as well.That worked for me until today.Now,while in space,the #1 key does not activate the power in the #1 slot on the action bar.I have to click it with the mouse and then can fire the forward phaser until it times out.After the cool down I have to manually click it again t activate.And this only happens in space combat.Everything functions normally on the ground,so its not my keyboard.
Here is the problem that I had with my ground weapon action buttons.
For the longest time when i would zone into a ground instance my weapons buttons would be missing from the interface. My other buttons remained the same (kit powers and devices), but my weapon buttons would vanish.
For a day during the head start the buttons worked perfectly but that was patched away.
For the last few days I've had the issue where the weapon buttons wouldn't disappear comepletely but would be on random empty buttons.
I would right-click drag to remove the buttons on the wrong spots, then re-drag the attacks from the 'p' abilities box to the action buttons I prefered.
And that was the mistake that I was making, and what some of you might have been doing.
Here's the solution that I found.
step 1. Open up your ground action bars to show all 3 rows. What you are looking for is the 'missing' or 'wrong spot' weapon attack buttons. In my case the melee attack was on the top row and my shots were on the second row.
step 2. Right-click drag the attacks from their current locations to your desired spots. It seems that weapon attacks dragged from the 'p' Abilities window do not stay after logging into space.
NOTE: If any of your weapon attacks are not showing when you show all 3 action bars it is because your other powers (kits and devices) are occupying the actoin button that STO assigns as its default. If you have this issue then drag off your other attacks then zone in and out of Sol Space dock to find the hidden weapon attacks. Its a little work, but its better than reworking your action bars everytime you ground zone.
Since I did this I have yet to have an issue with my action bars.
Hopefully this will help some of you with action bar issues.
NOTHING has helped. I cannot repair my action bars. They constantly bug out. This ground combat skills on my space action bar is game breaking for me. This is the third day I have been unable to play the game. How much longer before we get a hot fix on this?
You should be able to work around the goofy hotbars by relocating your powers (in space, anyway). I moved all my powers over one slot (moved former #1 power to #2 slot, #2 power to #3 slot, etc.). All I had to do was move my fingers over one spot on my # keys. Kind of a bummer, and I have to run with all 3 trays open, but it's very workable.
I did find that I had to repeatedly try to move my powers around in the trays...they didn't want to move. But i was able to per the 1st few posts on this thread - just can't move the #1 power out of that slot.
Not sure about the stuff getting goofy in ground missions.
New characters don't have this problem, so it was something that went SNAFU during a patch on existing characters.
