What's New in SDL
Detecting language please wait for.......
Polish letters (Latin with diacritical marks) are normally accessed using the AltGr (right Alt) key with the corresponding Latin character key, ex.: AltGr+a makes ą, AltGr+z make ż, AltGr+o makes ó, Shift+AltGr+l makes Ł. That is using the "Polish programmer's keyboard", which is widely used by Polish speaking computer users. That works fine for the following letters: ą,Ą, ć,Ć, ł,Ł, ó,Ó, ś,Ś, Ź (AltGr+X, Ż,ż, but does not work for ź (AltGr+x) as well as does not work for Ę (AltGr+E) and ę (AltGr+e). All the mentioned three combination has a function assigned (AltGr+x starts "Export setting" dialogue, while both AltGr+e and AltGr+E mark the field. I use 22.214.171.1244 version of the MultiTerm and all the combinations of these letters and Alt has been deleted from Options-> Keyboard shortcuts. Is there any other place to switch off the keyboard shortcut? Is it a matter of setting or simply a bug? That limits the usability of the MT. The same happens while editing a term in the Termbase Viewer of the Studio (126.96.36.19943). I work on Windows 2010.
For now, use a workaround:
Download the file "bundle.js" from here:
Hi Radek. I checked it in my environment (Windows 7, Multiterm 2021, ver. 188.8.131.524). In my case "ę" was working fine but I could not write "ź" until I removed the Export termbase shortcut in Options. Now it works fine both for upper and lower case letters. I also have Multiterm 2019 where this shorcut was not changed but it didn't affected version 2021.
I have removed Ctrl+Alt+X from the shortcuts and that works fine now. Still don't know how to fix e and E. Thanks, anyway.
Try to use CCleaner. Maybe there is a registry problem with this shortcut. Remember to carefully check what CCleaner is going to clean/fix and make registry backup just in case.
Running the CCleaner did not help. :-(
Cleaning the registry both with the CCleaner and Avast Cleanup Premium did not help so I assume it is a Multiterm's bug with the Polish keyboard support (might be with a specific Win 10 configuration, although I do not configure Windows in any unusual way - I believe). And running these programs has probably caused another problem with Studio, which I mentioned here.
Yes, indeed. Even after removing these shortcuts the combination CTRL+ALT+E does not work for Polish.
@Paul Filkin: would you please look at it?
These are the only Ctrl+Alt shortcuts active in my MultiTerm and I have no important Ctrl+Alt shortcuts in the Studio. I can't enter ę / Ę.
There are more CTRL+ALT shortcuts in other categories, see my screenshot.
Nonetheless, even after removing those 2 CTRL+ALT+E shortcuts shown, entering ę / Ę is not possible. I hope SDL will change this soon.
The list in my previous post is sorted by the shortcut so all the "Ctrl+Alt ..." are shown. "F2" is assigned to "edit" (terms).
Thank you for all your efforts to help me, Jerzy Czopik.
Is it necessary for me to post this as a bug report? Where?
I think this is already a bug report here.
Create a backup copy of c:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SDL\MultiTerm16\Editor\modern\bundle.js – you will need admin rights for this.
Then replace the bundle.js file with the one from the link above. This should enable Ctrl+Alt+E to be used for the Polish letter ę. Perhaps you can share this on the forum as well for anyone interested.
The bug has been acknowledged and will be resolved in the future.
Thank you Jerzy Czopik! I will try this soon and will let you know here if that works. Thanks a lot!
