Eg, C+ENTER, C+COMMA, A+COMMA, etc, because eg, the keyboard input code now registers C+COMMA as C+,.

Indeed C+ENTER doesn't even register correctly in the grab key dialog, it becomes C+<literal newline here>. A+ENTER becomes A+m (!).

One of the two keyboard handling code paths has to go, and all keyboard shortcuts updated to work with it.

    Another problem I've seen in 4.3pre9:
    Ctrl+Alt+v becomes Ctrl+Alt+v v

    Can the author(s) of the new keyboard handling help out with the fix?

    Assigning to Mediumnet, who developed the new keyboard handling.
    Sorry I should have assigned this sooner.

    Incidentally, there was a time when I needed to use the new keyboard handling because the old one was broken in many ways. Now I'm using the regular keyboard handling and it is fine, so I no longer need the simplified keyboard handling.
    Are there other users who find it still works better for them than the regular one?

    For me, the regular keyboard handling works much better (see bug #1562944).

    This is a severe bug. It's embarrassing that our editor has Ctrl Alt key bindings that don't work!

    Who is available that can fix it?

    I don't use new keyboard handling anymore. Does it work better for you in some situations?

    Where can I configure whether to use 'new' or 'old' keyboard handling?

    global options - jedit - general - use new keyboard handling (experimental).
