problem with ALT in shortcuts

Recommended Posts

maybe its bug that is already reported, but im unable to find it here...

if you are editing text field, and forexample press alt-space for inserting non breaking space, you loose focus on textfield and are in main menu (file, edit etc) 
Its super-annoying  if you are editing larger text :)

Hi grapher, 

I have a feeling this maybe how you're pressing Alt+Space. I found I could only reproduce this if I release Alt before Space (almost rolling my fingers over it). If I release space and then Alt I don't get it. Would you be able to try this and see if it improves the shortcut issue for you please?

yes, it is the case. Please fix this soon :)  its very annoying

Are you sure this isn't just normal Windows processing? Alt, by itself, would switch to the menu bar as a standard Windows action.

What happens in other applications?

I have tried other programs. I don't have Photoshop, though, so I can't try that one.

And unfortunately, none of my other programs, as far as I know, use Alt+Space for a non-breaking space.
