SIMION 8.0 Issues/Bugs/Enhancements

Filter issues by query:
Issue I492 [defect,gui,keys]
  Keyboard input and shortcut/accelerator key conflicts lacking proper
  conflict resolution and precedence.

  In some cases, a key might have more than one action associated
  with it.  For example, on the Print screen, the 'L' key might load
  annotations (via the accelerator for the "Load" function), create a
  label on a box annotation (via the graphical window input handler),
  or be part of text typed into the command bar.  Prior to
  8.0.5-TEST16, this was inconsistently selecting which action to
  trigger or in some cases triggering multiple actions.  This was
  generally easy to work around but was inconsistent.

  Example:
    On a Print screen, add a Label.  Put focus on Print button.
    Type 'l' inside label text.  Load Annotations box opens
    and 'l' is typed.  (This only affects ~ 8.0.5-TEST12-TEST15
    due to Issue I90).  Workaround: click graphical window
    before doing this to put focus on graphical window.

  Example:
    On a Print screen, add a Label.  Put focus on Print button.
    Hover mouse over label text.  Press left or right key.
    Both label cursor and Windows focus change.
  Example:
    Load quad\quadout.pa# in Modify.  In command bar, press key
    '+'.  The Layer Z is also incremented.

  Cause: The decision of who (e.g. graphical window, controls with
  accept_key handlers such as the command bar, controls with
  accelerators, and other controls) handles accelerator and other key
  input was not being handled properly.  This is complicated, but
  8.0.5-TEST16 removes dead-code from 7.0 and cleans this up.

  Resolved in 8.0.5-TEST16.
