Cannot type "@" in properties

Report Construct 2 bugs here.

Post » Tue Jan 06, 2015 7:04 pm

Problem Description
When I want to type "@" sign in email property, I can't. It pastes content from clipboard instead of @. I have Slovenian keyboard. For typing "@", I have to press AltGr and V (or Ctrl+Alt+V), but it doesn't work.
There are workarounds (Copy @ from somewhere and paste it, hold Alt and type 64), but anyway, I think it's a bug.
I can't type @ in any Property.

Attach a Capx
No Capx required since it's an editor bug.

  • Step 3: Click in email (or any other) property

Observed Result
Content from clipboard pastes.

Expected Result
Sign "@" should appear.

Can't reproduce, works just fine here with a UK keyboard. Are you sure it's not a problem specific to your system?

No problem here, also.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Hey, @Ashley
I'm sure it's not in my system ... I've tried on 2 different computers, with different OS ... It looks like it's only with Slovenian keyboard ... On other places in C2 (event sheets), I can type in @. I can't it only in properties.
Also, if I press Shift and 2 (I think that's @ on English keyboards), the " sign appears (like on Slovenian keyboard).
I'll try on Lenovo ideapad with win7, when I come home.

Hey there,
now I've tried on Lenovo ideapad S10-3 with Windows 7 starter SP1, and the problem is there, too.
I've tried to change keyboard to US - and it works then if I press Shift and 2. But I'm using Slovenian keyboard, where you have to press Alt Gr and V to get @. Could you please try to set to Slovenian keyboard if you can't reproduce the problem?

Hey, @Ashley
I've just tried other AltGr signs (\€÷×{}¤ ...), and they appear normally. Only @ doesn't appear.

  • (AltGr) + (Q)
  • (Strg) + (Alt) + (Q)
Both correctly working using Austrian keyboard layout.

Hold down "Alt", type "64", then release "Alt".

keycodes
I only occasionally visit - I'm learning C# for Unity, but c2 is still a respectable game engine imo....

Yes, yes, thank you. But that's a workaround... AltGr + V is probably here just for faster way to type @... I can type it in event sheets. But not in properties.
