Keyboard shortcuts do not work in Opera 12.50

DC

I've upgraded to Opera 12.50 (beta) and keyboard shortcuts stopped working in Todoist.

Pressing 'a' does not add a new task anymore. And even pressing Enter or Esc when editing a task do not do anything.

Other applications do not seem to have the problem. E.g. j/k still works in Google Reader.

Win7 x64, Opera 12.50-1538 x64

Hello Dmitry,

I can't reproduce this issue in the latest official final release of Opera and we cannot guarantee any functionality in a beta version of a browser.

If this issue will persist in the final release, please let us know and we'll try to fix it. Based on past experience, beta versions of other browsers have also introduced some issues into Todoist, but the final release of the browser did not have these problems. If it will, we'll fix it.


Best regards,
David

New Opera 12.10 was released yesterday.
And Todoist keyboard shortcuts are not working anymore.
(they are working fine in Opera 12.01)

It appears Opera developers were changing keyboard handling recently - there are some other quirks and broken shortcuts, not just in Todoist.

GMail / Google Reader hotkeys are working fine though (e.g. j/k)

Tested with Opera 12.10 (1652) on both WinXP 32-bit and Win7 64-bit

Hello Dmitry,

Thank you very much for your report, we've been able to reproduce this issue and we hope to fix it as soon as we can. Unfortunately, for now as a workaround, the only option would be to use a different browser to maintain full functionality.


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

It seems they've actually fixed keyboard handling rather than broke it:

"The script has a workaround for Opera's old (and incompatible) key handling - this workaround now breaks the new and compatible handling in 12.10."
From here - http://my.opera.com/sitepatching/blog/2012/10/25/facebook

And here - http://my.opera.com/sitepatching/blog/2012/10/08/banks-and-buses
"rememberthemilk.com: adapt to Opera 12.10's more compliant key event code"

I thought it might help you with the fix. :-)

Hello Dmitry,

Unfortunately, we won't implement any updates regarding the handling of our keyboard shortcuts which right now meet all standards and work fine in every other browser. Please try to contact Opera about this issue. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Best regards,
David
