I have a problem using the Delphi XE2 IDE: when type a keyboard combination with the ALT key an undesired character appear in my text code, rather then doing the intended action.
For example if do [ALT] + [ArrowLeft] to go to the previous view a diamond (the cardgame suit) appear instead.
If STRIP is not loaded in memory this does not happen.
It never happened before the last release, so I easily guess that the issue is related to the secret agent feature.
What I know is that the Delphi IDE is based on a .NET framework that have something in common with Microsoft Visual Studio, a kind of IDE runtime that Microsoft provide.
So the two programs are clashing somewhere in keyboard management.
I’m using Windows 7 Professional with all the current service packs and patches applied.
Resolving the issue is obviously the best option.
As a work around the corner cases I would suggest an option to inhibit the keyboard activation of the secret agent, letting the user to call it through the system tray icon.
I must say that otherwise I’m really satisfied by Strip, both the Windows and iOS app.
P.S. Just 3 minutes ago, while writing this topic, I called up Strip through the system tray and when suddenly back here I wasn’t able to type into anymore. I closed Strip and then typing was back to normal.
