ALT + 2 or shift + 2 is not functional in Android EditField

How do Alt + 2 OR shift + 2 functional in Android EditField component which Alt + 0-9 & SHIFT + 0 to 9 are respectively seized from 0 to 9. Only Alt + 2 & shift + 2 aren't seizes 2 in the EditField on all physical BlackBerry QWERTY devices such as the Q5, Q10, passport, P 9983 & classic.

Is this a known issue? This hotfix is scheduled to be delivered in the future BlackBerry Runtime for Android update applications?

This problem seems to occur when the inputType is set to 'numberPassword '. A bug report has been noted so I hope that the issue will be resolved in the future.

Remove inputType = "numberPassword" will allow you to use the shortcut Alt + e to enter '2', but I guess you want to restrict the EditText to accept only numeric characters.

At the same time (if you still want to accept numeric characters), do not hold down the shift or Alt to enter '2' with inputType = "numberPassword." You can simply press the 'e' '2 '.

  • My shift key does not work on my MacBook Pro

    My shift key does not work on my MacBook Pro. Can I use capital letters but only if I click on change and it's annoying. When I click on the passage icon shift comes at the top right of my screen to show its on but when I click on the lock button nothing happens as it used to glow green when I clicked it. Before someone says go to the system preferences and go to the modifier keys and restore them or make sure caps lock shift is on lock shift, I've tried that already, I looked it upward and found nothing similar. Help ASAP would be appreciated because it is really annoying

    Hello Gracepullan1,

    I understand that shift key of your MacBook Pro does not respond as before. Fortunately the steps below can help to restore the functionality of the SHIFT key on your Mac.

    1. In the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
    2. On the view menu, choose the speech.
    3. Click on the text to Speech tab.
    4. If "Text Speak selected when you press the button" is enabled, the key or combination of keys set to read the text cannot be used for other purposes, or used for typing text - click on set the key and replace it with a less commonly used key combination (try using the modifier such as SHIFT keys, command) Option and control). Or disable the option "Read the selected text when the key is pressed".
    5. Click the accessibility pane or universal access in system preferences, and then click the keyboard tab.
    6. Make sure the slow keys is off. With slow keys on, you must press a key for a longer period of time so he can be recognized.
    7. In the accessibility pane or universal access, click the mouse and make sure mouse keys is turned off. With the active mouse buttons, you cannot use the numeric keypad to enter numbers - instead the keypad moves the pointer (cursor). (There is an option to activate the MouseKeys to five presses down option, you can disable this option to avoid accidentally activate it.) If the mouse keys is enabled and you are using a keyboard without the numeric keypad or Num Lock function, see Impossible to type while mouse keys is enabled in Mac OS X.
    8. If the function keys on the top row of the keyboard do not work as expected, see Mac OS x: how to change the behavior of the function keys.
    9. If the problem persists, use the keyboard Viewer to help isolate the problem:
      1. Click the component language & text (Mac OS X v10.6) or international (Mac OS X 10.5.8 or earlier) in system preferences.
      2. Click on the tab Input Sources (or tab Menu entry under Mac OS X 10.5.8 or earlier version).
      3. Click on the keyboard and the characters 'On' box Viewer checkbox to select (click on the viewer of keyboard "On" checkbox under Mac OS X 10.5.8 or earlier).
      4. In the entry menu (flag), choose Show Keyboard Viewer.

  • If the keyboard is connected and detected by OS X, the keys you type will highlight in the keyboard Viewer window. Open TextEdit (or any text application) and try to type something using the keys that failed before to see if they highlight in the keyboard Viewer.
  • Start up from the Mac OS X installation disc, choose Terminal from the utilities menu and test buttons that did not previously.  If the keys work while started from the install disc, the keyboard works correctly.  How to solve a problem of software allows to isolate the software problem that may be causing the keys to not answer.

  • Impossible to draw circles or squares in Captivate (now the SHIFT key does not.)


    I am trying to add seats and circle shapes to a Captivate 8 project.

    Until I click to draw the shape, I hold down the SHIFT key to constrain the proportions. Captivate draw me an oval or rectangle all the same.

    Error test I tried:

    1. You attempt to add a square in PowerPoint to now SHIFT work (so not a hardware issue?)
    2. Resizing my dratted rectangles and ovals to now SHIFT in Captivate forced the proportions, but not to a shape, I need!
    3. Now SHIFT while resizing of images also forced the proportions.
    4. The same error occurs also in my copy of Captivate 7?

    I'm completely stumped. I know it's the basic function, but it is vital for me to be able to create a team available. Is it simply not possible to draw from the "perfect" square and circles in Captivate?


    Look no further, Captivate doesn't have that 'basic' feature at all. Sign in please, apply. Apparently only few users is absent, because it has never been on the priority list. I've been this logging for all versions from 5... but without success. And don't forget: I think it's really an essential feature. Work to MOVE when you want to maintain the proportions, is not to draw a circle or a square. You must change the size by using the properties, and it takes a lot of clicks, certainly in CP8.

  • CTRL + click / SHIFT + click does not not on the specific Web site

    I'm an admin for this blog site:

    If you use Firefox, I discovered that, for almost all of the links on the site above, perform a CTRL + click or a SHIFT + click the link does not open the link in a new tab or window, but on the contrary is no nothing that either.

    I tested a 22.0 Firefox running on two separate computers, and a Firefox running 16.0.2, and machines/versions behave exactly the same way, i.e. CTRL + click and SHIFT + click the links does nothing.

    By clicking normal on the links behave as expected, navigate to the location of the link. Using the right click > open link in a new tab, or right click > open the link in a new window works fine too.

    I tried CTRL + click and SHIFT + click on the site above using the two Chrome and IE, and they work fine. So I've narrowed the issue down to be something to do with the way Firefox processes the HTML of the site. Firefox on both machines deals very well with links on other sites by doing a CTRL + click or SHIFT + click. but not on this specific site.

    Can someone help me to find out why this is happening? Why is that a problem on Firefox? What is the specific site that Firefox has issues with?

    Thanks long before any wisdom or experience that you can lend to it. She was driving me crazy, as I have always used Firefox and I rely heavily on CTRL/SHIFT + click, especially when doing admin stuff.


    Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most of the modules.

    (If you use it, switch to the default theme).

    • You can open Firefox 4.0 + in Safe Mode holding the key SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • Or open the Help menu and click on the restart with the disabled... modules menu item while Firefox is running.

    Once you get the pop-up, simply select "" boot mode safe. "

    If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to understand that one. To do this, please follow article Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems .

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.

    When find you what is causing your problems, please let us know. It might help others who have the same problem.

    Thank you.

  • "Bookmarks and history system is not functional" with corrupt files found by Avast and slow loading Web sites ONLY in Firefox

    Firefox is the only browser that allows me to connect with my microphone. I need to use this feature for an online class. Earlier tonight, the message invites me to grant or deny permission to site class to use the microphone stopped appearing and without this registration only will pick up all the sounds and I can't save anything.

    I tried to quit and restart Firefox. I had a few extensions in use at the time, in particular Session Manager. The allow/deny message would not always appear, then I restarted my computer.

    Now when I open Firefox, I see the message error "the bookmarks and history system won't be not functional. In addition, the browser loads websites extremely slowly; It takes several minutes to load each page or for me to be able to click on anything whatsoever (bar URL, menus, etc.) my other browsers (Internet Explorer and Chrome) are functioning normally and loading Web sites at a normal speed. I tried to download the latest version of Firefox, but it does not solve anything. I also tried to restart the computer again, but that didn't help either.

    I ran my Avast software system check, and it has mounted as the following files under "C:\Users\ (me) \AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\Irozixj7.default ' are 'damaged and unreadable ':
    -cookies.sqlite - shm
    -cookies.sqlite - wal
    -places.sqlite - shm

    There was one more problem on the analysis, but it is probably not relevant: the file "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Definition Updates\{9A2C6FA7-E04E-4819-B86A-8363A9D1E42A}\mpengine.dll" it says "the system does not have the specified path. When I tried to follow the path shown, one of the files (I can't remember who) said something along the lines of "you can't access this folder, you want to allow access to this file permanently? I said yes and was able to access the folder.

    I tried to add the extension in Maintenance of places, but the speed is too slow to download anything. Trying to access any results of the menus in the Explorer freezing for several minutes then thaw but with the menu still unopened. As a result, none of the solutions found here ( & as = aaq) seem to work.

    My questions are the following:
    -Is it possible to understand what caused the problem in the first place?
    Is there a way for me to fix it without losing my bookmarks and history?
    -How can I prevent that from happening again in the future?

    First of all, I recommend you backup your Firefox settings in case something goes wrong. See back up and restore the information contained in the profiles of Firefox. You can copy the folder of your Firefox profile together somewhere outside the Mozilla folder. To quickly access this folder:

    Help > troubleshooting information > "view file" button.

    Then, to keep this file open, exit Firefox and try to move "damaged and unreadable" files to another folder. With the exception of localstore.rdf, which stores the positions of windows, toolbar tools and other data non-essential customizations, other files appear to be specific session files that we hope, are not critical. If you restart Firefox, should he behave more normally?

    If this is not the case, try to create a fresh Firefox profile. It will be the Flash plugin, which is the control of sites use usually to connects to your camera or microphone and other plugins, but otherwise will be a new configuration. This article has the commissioning steps in the Profile Manager: use the Profile Manager to create and delete profiles Firefox.

    If the sites are functioning normally in the new profile, you can import your bookmarks from your old profile, as well as the copy on the other files that do not appear to be the cause of the problem. Some trial and error may be needed to determine that. This article has a few tips: recovery of data from an old profile.

    If the new profile is not better, you can exit Firefox and use the Profile Manager to return to your original profile.

    Any improvement?

  • Command-Shift-D does not not for sending mail


    I have a MacBook Pro with a German keyboard. I discovered that command + shift + D did not work in E-mail to me. In order to make this work I also had to change the language from English to German. I can reproduce the problem by switching to English. I tried also to English (United States), but it has the same problem.

    Is this a known problem or am I just wrong and it's another shortcut when using English as the main language?

    Thank you!

    Replying to my own post - a possible workaround is to explicitly specify the order the mail application shortcut in system preferences.

  • Satellite C660 - the SHIFT key does not work


    I have a problem with a Satellite C660.
    The keyboard, I cannot use the SHIFT key. After you have installed windows everything worked properly, the problem recurs after a few days. Practically the SHIFT key does not work.
    On the one hand I'm the A and the other side works like ESC.

    Help me I'm crazy.
    Thank you.


    To me that sounds more like a keyboard failure, I can't imagine that it could be linked to the question of the windows operating system do you have tested an external USB keyboard.

    Please test this. In this case, you can check if it s really a software problem.
    If the USB keyboard works correctly, it means that your internal keyboard is malfunctioning.

  • Shift register do not add

    Hi all

    I am trying to use the shift register adding all the waveform detected. The additional result will be divided the current number of waveform to the average score. However, it seems that the shift register does not at all. See the image below, if the waveform number is 1000, the intensity of the signal averaging is of only 1/1000 of the signal detected. Theoreically, if no noise present and the shift register has added each detection, the average signal should be identical to the detected signal. Can someone help me solve this problem?

    Thank you very much

    First of all you should be dividing by the end of the inner loop, I not + 1 of the outer loop.

    If you want an average on the outer loop as well, you need a registry change in this loop.

  • Development of lighting and shadows settings are not functions

    While implementing a plugin to image processing, I learned something very interesting (for me) on the tones dark and light parameters of development.  The other basic tone settings (exposure, contrast, saturation, etc.) always map any one color to another simple color evenly across the image.  But the dark and light tones can map a given in multiple colors in a single image, depending on the location of the pixel color.

    For example, in a test image I made with Shadows = + 100, pixel (824 286) had its origin value of 16-bit color (0, 0, 0) transformed into (1724,1387,852).  Pixel (861 287) was also the original color (0,0,0), but it turns into a color very different (3093,2688,1316).

    Abstractly, the other the basic tone settings are functions (any input color is always the same output color), all in shadows and points strong are-to-many mappings (any color input can have several colors of output). I knew that clarity not was not a function - transformed from a pixel value would depend on neighboring pixels.  But it does appear to me that dark and light tones are not functions either.

    This property of shadows and highlights well known by experienced users of LR?  (I.e. Rob, I guess you knew that?)

    Yup - @Lr4 (PV2012) there are 3 settings using the new algorithm 'magical' from Adobe:

    * Clarity

    * Puts out

    * Shadows

    I don't know really enough to fill in many details, except to say that when you use - highlights or + shadows, he 'clarifies' highlights and/or shadows a bit, using the algorithm of the transformed of Laplace-based Adobe developed. Jeff Schewe made us a white paper on this subject in the past, but I do not know the link... For me, it is similar to the "Topaz" detail and Topaz Adjust 'adaptive' improvements - two Photoshop plugins I used regularly until the Lr4 is out (Adobe algorithm is very well done - in my opinion, better than Topaz labs, or others are doing similar things, for example, PhaseOne, DxO, Nikon,..).

    FWIW - it's one of the reasons why some people raise hell when Lr4 is out - no way to brighten the shadows using sliders base without getting the effect of clarification... That said, Eric Chan also informed us that extra Lr3 light had a similar mathematical algorithm it backup and therefore Lr4 wasn't new in this regard, only improved...


  • cc of Photoshop, shift + f2 does not work

    I want to change my color of the interface using this shortcut, but it does not work...

    Also shift + f1 does not work too...


    It's the same thing in my copy of Photoshop cc Mac and Win. For some reason strange SHIFT + F1 and SHIFT + F2 no longer works.

    Photoshop CC user guide provides shortcuts shift + 1 and shift + 2, but doesn't work on my Mac and PC versions.

    Until this is settled, preferences > Interface is the only way to change the interface.

    If there are members of the Adobe staff present, some details on the State of the Interface hotkeys would be a great help.
