Modifier key (Shift) stops working

Post by elupin »

XMBC Version: 2.19.12
Windows Version: 10
Mouse Information (brand/model): N/A
Relevant Computer Information (CPU, RAM etc):
Did the problem occur after an upgrade of XMBC? (If so, from what version?):
Did the problem occur after a Windows update/upgrade? (If so, from what version?):
How long have you used XMBC?: years and years
What language and keyboard layout do you use in Windows?: US English

Clear description of the problem - try and include as much information as possible, including what button and mappings you are having problems with (if applicable).:

I have mapped Layer 2 left and right mouse buttons to be {SHIFT}{LWIN}{LEFT} and {SHIFT}{LWIN}{RIGHT} in order to quickly move windows from one monitor to another. The modifier to reach Layer 2 is Shift, but XMBC frequently stops activating Layer 2 upon Shift. This happens after I have moved four or five windows and is fairly repeatable. I have to exit XMBC and restart to get Shift working again.

Not sure what would cause that but if shift is already down for the layer modifier, try taking the {shift} out of the simkey sequence - the shift may be confusing things/getting stuck down or something...

I tried removing the Shift from the simulated keys but it didn't help.

OK, I'll see if I can reproduce the problem here and get back to you.

EDIT: Is this a new problem (in 2.19) or has it always happened?

I'd say it's fairly new but I can't say that it happened after the update.
