Subject [jira] [Commented] (NETBEANS-663) Shortcuts using "alt/option" on the mac do not work.
Date Mon, 13 Aug 2018 23:02:00 GMT


Austin Stephens commented on NETBEANS-663:

So, it appears that Oracle, in their infinite wisdom, decided to emit the ALT_GR modifier
with the ALT modifier in Java 9+. It happens to both ALTs on the Mac and the right one on
windows. The added causes the shortcut lookup to fail since it was only expecting ALT. It
seems to break other things like the shortcut option window (Alt + key don't register)

> The menu item flashes like it was activated, but nothing happens. This might be because
the key is interpreted like "alt altGraph pressed \{Key}" or because it is never added to
the binding map. I do note that "alt + F11" was in the map, but that didn't work either (probably
for the first reason). All of the others are just not in the map. See NbKeymap.getAction.
