I'm using Microsoft Office 2003 (SP3) on Windows 7 (86x or 64x)

My issue is when I try to save a file, in the file selection dialog Office 2003 can't change the input language or the direction (neither the Alt+Shift nor Ctrl+Shift key combinations work).

When Copy-pasting a name or a path it works.

This situation happens randomly. On Windows XP I never experienced such a problem and I have not experienced this with other applications (including MS Office 2007 specifically).

What could be causing this?

Do you have SP3 installed? – Karan Jul 14 '13 at 0:36
@Karan: Yes, of course. – einpoklum Jul 14 '13 at 7:57
