Bugs "German keyboard layout"?

Bugs "German keyboard layout"?

Hello everyone,

I apologize, I am not a native English speaker (but German).

I noticed that it seems the German keyboard layout has possible some errors under current Windows 10 Pro German / Ryzen 3700x 64 GB RAM (in the English keyboard environment this behavior does not occur). When the German language is enabled in the settings and entering text, the some letters are not displayed as text, but the program performs actions.

For example, the letter small g causes the grid to be displayed, pressing the letter small g again hides the grid. A small d is not written, but I cannot see any program action.

Thank you in advance

Vanderil

I'm not sure I understand the issue correctly but I tried to write a "d" in a label (on a german keyboard of course) and it works.

Text f.e. "Ingolf" in German - Result no small g, but grid is on. Another small g - grid is off. No small d in text label. :(

Edit: just tested again, app deinstalled completely, installed and same behaviour.

Looking into it.

Are you running the program in English or German translation? (That is, what language do you have selected).

Thank you!

We have Windows 10 Professional systems here in Northern Bavaria. Two run the German version of Windows and one runs the U.S. version. All have German keyboards. We have no US or UK keyboards. Until now I haven't used OWM on a German-Windows machine, but after reading this thread, I decided to try it out. I am unable to duplicate the problems described above, either with German Windows and the German keyboard or with US Windows and the German keyboard. I don't know what's causing the problem, but I wonder if the user has the wrong code page active.

Can you just explain, please? What do you mean here (just to clarify)?

Thank you.

Best regards

I was able to reproduce the issue: Settings -> Language -> Deutsch

After restarting OWM, I got the same issues as descriped. Switching back to EN fixed everything.

My physical keyboard or OS language doesn't seem to matter.

Seeing that you need instructions for the German Windows 10 Pro version, I'm going to switch to German here. That shouldn't bother anyone, seeing that this is a problem only with use of the German Windows versions.

Es ist irritierend, aber manchmal muss man vorübergehend die Einstellungen in Windows ändern, um englischsprachige Programme erfolgreich in der deutschen Version von Windows zu benutzen. Als Balmung vorgeschlagen hat, muss Folgendes mit OWM gemacht werden.

1. Das kleine Windows-Symbol unten links auf dem Bildschirm mit der linken Maustaste anklicken.

2. Die Option Einstellungen wählen.

3. Die Option Zeit und Sprache wählen.

4. Die Option Sprache wählen.

5. Unter Windows Anzeigesprache, die Option English (United States) wählen.

Nach der Arbeit mit OWM diese Einstellung wieder auf Deutsch (Deutschland) setzen.

Servus,

Hey, I've reproduced this on our end and added it to our list. It will be fixed for next version, which should be coming out soon! Thank you all for letting us know!
