MSKLC (bug report) RRS feed

  • Question

  •    Hello. I tried MSKLC 1.4 to build a custom keyboard layout with dead keys and found a strange limitation: if the main character of a dead key has a Unicode codepoint larger than 1FFF the dead key becomes buggy. Let’s take USA layout, place a character ‘•’ (U+2022) on the VK_1 (Ctrl+Alt shift state), and make its dead key table (‘ ’ transforms into ‘•’), then build the layout and install it. When the new layout is used ‘Alt Gr + 1’ combination only gives a warning sound, the dead key doesn’t work at all. If I try to load the layout from the list of existing ones the warning sound also happens and the dead key isn’t exist. The dead key works if ‘ˆ’ (U+02C6) is chosen instead of ‘•’ (as example). Is this behavior a bug of MSKLC or Windows? (I use a machine with Windows XP SP3.)
