Bug Description

The Hotkey Editor in PCBNew on KiCad 5.0 release version running on Windows 10 will not accept certain characters with the Ctrl modifier. The following keys cannot be assigned in the Hotkey Editor: Ctrl-0, Ctrl-1, Ctrl-2 through Ctrl-9, Ctrl-`, Ctrl-., Ctrl-\, etc.. They can be assigned only through exporting the hotkey file and editing it manually and then importing the changed file.

Please include your KiCad version information. I believe this issue is only on certain platforms and has already been reported.

A search of the bug tracker for "hotkey windows" did not yield a similar report.

This persists in KiCad 5.0.2 release on Windows 10. For now, exporting, editing, and importing the hotkeys file is a workaround.

I confirmed this on windows 10 with the development branch as well. If I remember correctly, this is as wxWidgets issue due to the menu accelerator handling on windows. Although it may have been corrected in the 3.1 branch.
