] character erases file name on BE keyboard


I have DO 11.7 on Win7 32-bit, the keyboard is Belgian AZERTY.
When I edit a filename (left-click on already selected file, or right-click + Rename), upon entering a "]" character in the edit box the content is erased and now only contains the "]" character. (a "]" character is formed by AltGr+$ combination)
The issue was introduced in DO 11.6.
Other combinations like AltGr+^ to form "[" do not have the issue.
The issue is annoying because I use "[...]" comments in folder names for my music collection.
Could you investigate?

Thanks, Arne

If you download the most recent beta this issue should be resolved for you.

I had the same issue with any combination involving AltGr. I am on an Italian keyboard so the characters were @ # [ ] { }. As arneto said, introducing the same characters in another way (I did it via ASCII code, so Alt+091 and Alt+093 for square brackets, for example) didn't trigger the issue.

I wanted to Iet you know that I just installed DO 11.7.3 and the issue's gone. Thanks!

This fixes it.
Thanks for the great service,



The issue is reintroduced in 11.8.

Best regards,

Bump topic...

This didn't change in 11.8 as far as I know.

In the next update we'll change this function so that it uses Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down rather than a character key, which should solve the problem for good on non-English keyboards.
