I am encountering a strange behavior while using ALT keys while editing a text file with c4droid on my Motorola Droid 3. If I use an ALT key to type a character such as { or \, the ALT key seems to "stick", and I am forced to type a character before I can type a normal keyboard character. No combination of keys seems to be able to deactivate the ALT key other than simply pressing one key, and having it output one undesired character. The output looks like

int main((nt argc...

instead of

int main(int argc...

Do I need to perhaps modify the keymap? How can I alleviate this problem? I hope I am describing the issue properly.

  • when you write a special character do you click on alt + button XXX or you click on alt then click button XXX ? Commented Jul 20, 2015 at 2:45
  • @lord-ralf-adolf either - the difference doesn't seem to matter

  • I suggest you send a feed back to de app's dev ,the implementation of supporting physical keyboards is in the app it self ,or may be there is an option in the app's settings to remap or choose keys behavior Commented Jul 20, 2015 at 19:10

Since this behavior appear only in the c4droid app ,it isn't a system problem but a problem with the c4droid app ,I suggest you send a feed back to the app's dev ,the implementation of supporting physical keyboards is in the app it self ,or may be there is an option in the app's settings to remap or choose keys behavior.
