i currently use the 3.9.1 gpg4win port. The "E", "F" and "B" keys don't output the corresponding Letters but instead act as:
E and F as "Enter"
B as "Return"
The problem only exists in the (whole subject,body etc.) composer window.
Keyboard Layout: "de_DE" (also tested en_US).
The same bug exists in 3.9.3 standalone version of "Claws Mail" (not gpg4win).
I am pretty sure that these keys worked as expected at start but now act as described above - a close reopen/restart does not solve the problem!
I already tested uninstalling the html-view (didn't solve). The other plugins were installed when i first started the program so i don't think they produce the bug?
Hope you guys can help me as i really like the program! :)
Just a thought - perhaps you inadvertently set those keys to some menu actions (it's easy with GTK, you just have to press a key while hovering over some menu). Try exiting claws-mail, moving "menurc" file away from configuration directory of claws-mail (I have no idea where that is on Windows), and starting claws-mail again to see if it fixes the issue.
Awesome - Thanks!
Wasn't aware about this feature!
I had the following lines uncommented (as expected):
(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/Menu/Edit/Advanced/EndLine" "e")
(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/Menu/Edit/Advanced/BackChar" "b")
(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/Menu/Edit/Advanced/ForwChar" "f")
I commented them instead deleting/moving the whole file. That solved it!
Guess i could empty the file if i don't want to use this feature?
For anyone else facing this problem (on Windows):
Make sure Claws Mail is closed or it will overwrite the menurc when closing.
The "menurc" file is located in "%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Claws-mail\".
This path (without the quotes) should work across all Windows versions since %userprofile% reflects the homepath.
Commented lines start with "; ". Uncommented lines (active commands) don't have the semicolon at start. Comment them or simply rename the file to menurc.bak.
That should fix the problem.
You may should add RESOLVED > NOT A BUG or is RESOLVED > INVALID the equivalent?
I'm glad the solution was this simple. :)
If you do not want to use customizable shortcuts at all, you can simply disable this feature in Claws-Mail preferences (on page Other -> Miscellaneous).
And yes, INVALID (or sometimes WORKSFORME) is our equivalent of NOTABUG.
