    Have been able to reproduce this, but it for me this is fixed with 1.1.1 (Release Candidate 1 for our 1.1)

    Can you update your Greenshot to our latest, which is still in testing, and test this for us?

    You can find the latest version here: http://getgreenshot.org/version-history

    Best wishes,
    Robin

    Tested. Alt+F to open the File menu did not work, but Alt+E, Alt+O, and Alt+H did.

    Also, when the File menu is selected , the arrow keys don't work for navigation. If you do manage to tease them to work, they are backwards. Right-arrow goes left to right through the menu, left-arrow goes right to left.

    If a menu is open (say, Edit), the selection will stick to that menu, and won't allow you to cycle through the other menus as you can with any standard Windows app.

    If you click the Greenshot icon in the system tray and then press Shift+F10, the File menu is not selected, but it should be.

    The shortcut keys on the menus do seem to be firing. I tested Ctrl+S, Ctrl+P, Shift+Ctrl+C, etc.

    I can send a video documenting these behaviors if need be.

    Hi,

    I will check this, I guess it shows that we don't use keys to navigate through Greenshot ourselves... I also know of issues with the settings where the tab-order is wrong..

    Best wishes,
    Robin

    Had a quick look at it, this is a mess...

    We need to check this for every language, add "hotkey" tokens to our language files...

    Not something I can do right now with the release comming, this needs to wait for the next.

    I am on the latest release. Greenshot prompted me to update. The shortcut keys worked in Win8 with the test release, but do not work on the production release.
