Suddenly (often when editing text) in photoshop, the program does not respond to any keypress other than the alt-keys, arrows, etc. Typing any regular character results in opening some windows (the input is interpreted as hotkeys perhaps?). The only way to get things back to normal is to restart the program. Any help on this? Have anyone experienced the same problems?
I have sometimes problems with keyboard input with wine applications (not only photoshop)... I can get it to work changing to another desktop and pressing every modifier (alt, ctrl, shift, win) keys to release them. But this is really annoying and I hope Codeweavers solve this issue in the next release. 😊
Yes, this is one of our known bugs that keeps being fixed and then coming back. We are actively working on it. you do have the current work around which is to just press the keys and release them to reset the key press buffer.
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
