HotKeySet Documenation Error

Reported by: KnowsNothing Owned by:
Milestone: Component: Documentation
Version: 3.3.9.22 Severity: None

Description

It appears the HotKeySet documenation contains an erroneous sentence that does not make any logical sense.

"It is better to use the lower keyboard key as for keyboard as Russian one, the unshifted key is not the lower value. I.E. "D" is not the upper case of "B". The Hotkey will not be set and a failure will occur."

It is better to use the lower keyboard key as for keyboard as Russian one, the unshifted key is not the lower value. I.E. "D" is not the upper case of "B". The Hotkey will not be set and a failure will occur.

I believe the gist of what this is attempting to convey is: "It is better to use Lower-Case keys/characters to avoid errors in keyboard layout. IE: On some keyboards, upper and lower case keys may be mapped differently."

Although, to my knowledge, most people (even in Russia) use a QWERTY-derived keyboard now-a-days, so I'm not quite sure even if the above revised sentence is accurate and not mis-leading.

None-the-less, as-is, this sentence makes no sense at all and probably should be reviewed for a future release.

Thanks!

EDIT: I should note that I discovered this in version 3.3.8.1 and it appears to still be present in the latest beta version 3.3.9.22

Changed text to read:

"It is recommended to use lower-case keys/characters (e.g. "b" and not "B") when setting hotkeys to avoid errors as with some keyboard layouts upper and lower case keys may be mapped differently."
