Keyboard problems running on Windows 8.1

Postby Thomas Lohrum » Tue Nov 17, 2015 7:27 pm

Hi Alex,

i am using a Cherry JD-0400DE-2 wireless keyboard with Windows 8.1. Ever since, i have the problem of duplicate keystrokes. For example i type a single "C", but it will be duplicated such as "CCherry". Today, for the first time, my problems got worse. Some keystrokes did not function anymore. For example Ctrl+Del always was interpreted as a single "Del". Even in other applications. Restarting CintaNotes did solve the issue. Seems something going wrong with Cinta's Keyboard hook.

Any ideas?

Hi Thomas,

This is strange because the only place where CN is using keyboard hooks is in the "Options / Hot Keys" dialog.
So that only thing which uses a kb hook is that hot key editor component.

The clipping hotkey is a regular system-wide hotkey and it doesn't use keyboard hooks.

Are you 100% sure that CintaNotes is causing this problem?

No, i am not sure about CintaNotes causing the problem. My intention was (a) to make you aware about possible problems and (b) gain a better understanding of CintaNotes, so i can better track, what causes this. Thanks for the clarification.

No problem, Thomas. Please let me know if it still turns out that CN is to blame.
