#66 Ctrl+a (adding branch below) does not work when 'note' window is open.

hotkeys (1)


Ctrl+a hotkey does not work when a note window is open.

Steps to reproduce:
- Create a new map
- Create a branch via 'a' hotkey.
- press 'n' to open the note window.
- now press 'ctrl-a' to create a new sub-branch.

Expected result:
- new branch below current one is created.

Actual result:
- nothing happens. There is a great silence, wind noise in the background.

Additional info:
- oddly, shift+a still works, it creates a branch above the current one.
- ctrl+a works if you close the note window again. It only doesn't work if the note window is open. It doesn't work even thou the focus is on the branches and not the note window.

System info:
VYM: Version 2.3.20 - 2013-09-13
Linux: Fedora release 20 (Heisenbug)

Please let me know if I can collect/provide additional information.

Version 2.3.20 - 2013-09-13

    Hm, I cannot reproduce this (vym 2.3.23, but that shouldn't make a difference), and KDE 4.11.5 on openSUSE 13.1)

    ...wait... it does not work, if the note editor window is docked within mainwindow, so can you check if it works when undocking it? (Just grab it and place it beside mainwindow)

    Thank you for the quick response.

    Now that you mention it, interestingly, after trying this. When the note window is un-docked, then the problem does not occur. It only occurs when the note window is docked.

    I'm using GNOME desktop.

    btw, I'm a computer science student with some c++/eclipse debugging experience. If I can be of some help for troubleshooting, please let me know. I also speak German btw.

    Thank you for your effort.
