Task #185 — Big Insert Key problem

I have managed to reproduce the \"Big Insert Key does not work\" problem. It is definitely something in Win-Test.

CAPS LOCK is NOT, repeat, NOT on!

Select Operating > Technique > \"Advanced SO2R\".

The small Insert key always works OK.

If \"Caps Lock binds to secondary radio\" is selected, the big Insert key (in the numeric keypad section of the keyboard) works OK.

If \"Shift binds to the secondary radio\" is selected, the big Insert key does NOT work.

If both \"Shift binds to the secondary radio\" AND \"Caps Lock binds to secondary radio\", the big Insert key does NOT work.

If neither Caps Lock nor Shift is selected for binding to the secondary radio, the big Insert key works OK.

If you select \"Shift...\" in Advanced SO2R, then change to either SO2R or SO1R technique, the \"Shift binds to...\" is shown grayed out with a check mark, and the big Insert key does NOT work.

73,

Problem confirmed.

I read http://docs.win-test.com/wiki/SO2R/Shiftbindssecond_radio, but found no mention of the Insert key.

After playing with this for a while, I noticed that when Shift binds to second radio is enabled, and you make the secondary radio window visible (Windows, Secondary Radio), pressing [big Insert] generates a \"0\" in the secondary radio window. In fact any of the keys on the numeric pad generate numeric data entry in the secondary radio window. It\'s as if \"Shift\" key is pressed for you whenever you enable this option.

Maybe this is a Windows limitation. When NumLock is OFF, Shift+[any key on the numeric pad] is equivalent to temporarily enabling NumLock, keys, where (on a U.S. keyboard), Insert = 0, End = 1, down arrow = 2, PgDn = 3, etc. There doesn\'t seem to be any way to work around this with DEFINEKEYS, as that window seems to completely ignore the state of NumLock, CapsLock, and ScrollLock.

Personally I\'ve found CapsLock binds to secondary radio to be much easier to set up.

(hard do figure out the formatting rules in this tool).
