Key sequence doesn't work

Post by Georgi » Tue Apr 17, 2018 8:07 am

Issue with the Key Sequence functionality. I notice that in version 8.1 it is impossible to use key sequence option after the acceleration key is used. For example: use only the keyboard buttons (acceleration key) to navigate to somewere. In my case I am working with one desktop application and I am trying to navigate to file open . I use the following buttons: Alt, F , O to open the file window. The focus is on the field in which to enter the file name. The problem is that when I use the key sequence option to enter the path and the file name , during ranorex execution when it is time to start to enter the text , it starts to change the languages and respectively the result is apsolutly incorrect text.
This doesn't happens in version 7

Please take care of this and let me now when you have a solution

Could you please put together a small sample solution, showing your problem? I'm using key sequence and key shortcuts a lot in my tests and I've experienced no problems regarding these actions, after updating tests with 8.x.
