    Default Keyboard Actions not working as expected

    Hi Ron or anyone else that can answer this. I am trying to control an application with keyboard shortcuts however it doesn't appear to be working. I tried the notepad example which shows using *o to trigger the open dialog however all it does it place an o in the document window. This leads me to believe the special keys aren't being parsed properly.

    In the app I'm working with I need to send Ctr+Shift+Right Arrow so I tried *^<RIGHT> as well as several other things and nothing worked.

    Any one know what I'm doing wrong or if there's a bug in Girder?

    Keyboard emulation is something that windows doesn't directly support as such we have to fool application into thinking the keyboard is being used. This then means it won't work all of the time.

    1. Make sure you have the same bitness of application ( Girder comes in 32 and 64 bits, match your target application )
    2. Play with the targeting options
    3. Maybe "command capture" is able to help
    4. Are there alternative interfaces into the application?
    No support through PM
