[1.1.0] type() types multiple chars with capital

Bug Description

This is the 2015-09-25 daily.

I need to type a capital "V". I've tried both:



type("v", Key.SHIFT)

In both cases, my app behaves as if I've typed *both* capital and lower case "v".

The only relevant debug is:

[debug] TYPE "V"
[debug] Region: TYPE "V"


[debug] ( Shift ) TYPE "v"
[debug] Region: ( Shift ) TYPE "v"

 (not blocking for me, just fyi…)

Thanks for the hint, but I did not have any problem with the final version of 1.1.0, which is out now.

Ok, I'll check when I update, thanks.

This is still happening for me, with the 1.1.0 release.

A simple (Python) test function as:

def testFun3():

    MyAppRegion.type("v", Key.SHIFT)


... causes the app to behave as if both a V and a v have been sent. If I manually type V and v, the app does the same thing. But if I type just V, or V and V in quick succession -- the app behaves as I'd expect.

Possibly of relevance, the essential part of the init() is:

        MyApp = App("xxx.exe")

        MyAppRegion = MyApp.focusedWindow()

The app has exactly one window.

(but, btw, I can live with this. Getting OCR working is *much* higher priority!!! ;-) )

Sorry, but I cannot reproduce this behavior with different apps:

# chrome is running
win = App.focusedWindow()
type("l", Key.CTRL)
type("v", Key.SHIFT)
wait(3) # time to watch ;-)

What I see as result is one uppercase v

summary: - type() types multiple chars with capital
+ [1.1.0] type() types multiple chars with capital

I wonder if, like the other report, it's something that's not seen with chrome, but more with full-screen graphics apps? I'm running a full-screen graphics app in "windowed" mode.
