Unable to add/use a keyboard shortcut with ` key
Unable to add/use a shortcut with ` key.
Such shortcuts can be added/used on v1.4.589.38.
Reported this last year.
But no fix as yet.
Not worth fixing?
Or there is a limitation?
@vias I have no problem assigning a shortcut and it works. Ctrl + ` also works just fine.
I use a UK Extended keyboard for Windows. The ` key is a dead key used to type àèìòù etc.
Specs: AMD A10-6800K, 8 Gb on Win 10 64-bit • Snapshot 1.11.904.3 (64-bit)
On some languages the ` is used as a dead key and fixing will not be easy. The bug got a Wontfix by the dev.
The fix should be possible and affects users from 2 big countries: US and RU
It's incredible that it's ignored for so long.
For now, you can use VivaldiHooks. Make sure to use latest 1.11 snapshots and get the latest VivaldiHooks from github, because as from Vivaldi 1.10 many changes were needed.
Reopen a new bug report, i will try to ping a dev.
Thank you all for the infos!
Mine is US keyboard and there's no dead key.
US keyboard (layout) is so widely used and the devs surely know.
If they can fix it (in the future), they will.
Or if they will, they can.
(And it's the same with other why-never-fixed issues.)
So I'm going to use VivaldiHooks instead of reporting it again.
