Global hotkeys can't insert selected filenames. They have to be able to run when triggered from any application, and if you trigger them when a random other program is active then there's obviously no file selection to pass to them.
Edit: Although, hmm, if it used to work then maybe previously it was run like a local hotkey if Opus was active, and a global one otherwise... Perhaps something changed there.
As in the file is being passed to notepad2 correctly and it's opening it. however, doptest still doesn't get the parameters.
I'm left scratching my head over this. Does it have to do with Keyboard hooks and all that?
Or with ClipX, a clipboard enhancer?
Even with a lister open and not active it works!
I just figured it out.
If i have multiple listers open it stops working!
if i have only one open it works.
I guess with multiple listers it doesn't know which lister to pick and which selection. (it doesn't work even if i have one of the listers active!)... (i only use dual listers, haven't tested with 2 single lister)
so i think this might be a bug. Can someone confirm this? Thanks.
Hi jon, the problem is, I don't have any special drivers installed for this keyboard, they use the default MS keyboard drivers.
It's weird because I could assign such a hotkey in foobar2000, where I set the "Play" button on the keyboard as a global play/pause hotkey for foobar2000. Just for your info, when I assigned it in foobar, "Play / Pause (MM)" appeared in the field in foobar. So I guess it's probably a matter of implementing the detection of these keys.
