Right Alt (AltGr) acts like Control key while in Text Tool

  • This causes troubles with writing of polish diacritical marks like ą, ć, ę, ł, ń, ó, ś, ź, ż which are obtained by using AltGr + letter (like AltGr + a = ą, AltGr + Shift + a = Ą etc.)

    For example, when writing with the Text tool:
    AltGr+n should be ń but it acts like Ctrl + n (New Document)
    AltGr+s should be ś but it acts like Ctrl + s (Save A Copy) etc.

    I'm using Polish keyboard QWERTY (Programmer) and Win 10.

    @Harry Yes, this is a regression. The fix will be in the next build.

  • @VectorStyler Thanks for the fast response! As of 1.2.016 release, the problem has been partially resolved. There are no pop-up menus now, but I have to press the diacritical mark key twice while holding AltGr.

    For example, instead of AltGr+n I have to press AltGr+n, n etc.

    @Harry I reopen this issue.

  • @VectorStyler In my case, everything is currently working as it should.

    Edit: I don't know why , but now, have the same issue as @Harry. Just opened browser to write post here than returned to VS and since that have to use shortcut twice.
    Edit 2: Ok, I know why it worked in my case. AltGR + Letter works properly only for the first character in text field - any further require double use. I was typing 'Ą' , than delete and typing 'Ć' and so on.
