HI Ahmad,
You have to be careful to not type extra characters at any time.  Maybe once you accidentally hit a key twice and then from the continuous "sesesesesese" that was entered, it was applying "se" (toggle silhouettes) several times instead of "es" -- if too difficult for you to control, maybe it would be better to not use use keyboard shortcuts directly (do not enable them).  Instead use the shortcut indirectly with the "ac"  command (command: ac es) so it will be clear that you mean the "es" function and not "se".

shortcut functions

ac command

I hope this helps,
