    In Windows, if I hold the ALT key and press letters, I can activate the main menu bar but nothing under it (menu options). This is unexpected and seems like a bug.

    Hi Mike,

    I am using version 0.38.3 of Cherrytree and Alt F, Alt E, and Alt the other underlined letters in the Menu are working just as you would expect.

    Which version are you using as I couldn’t decipher that from your post?

    Yerodin,

    I use Cherrytree version 0.38.4. As an example, if I press ALT-M, the formatting menu appears. If I then continue to hold ALT while I press “3”, nothing happens. To use the submenu items, I must release the ALT key before pressing the underlined shortcut. This behavior is not typical for software for Microsoft Windows.

    Mike,

    Have you tried your steps without continuing to hold the ALT key before pressing 3?

    You wrote:

    In my CherryTree v0.38.3 experience, not continuing to hold the ALT key before pressing 3 works.

    If in the new version that approach doesn’t work then perhaps Giuspen might need to take another look at the code.

    Try it out and see if you can function better.

    Yerodin,

    Yes, I tried it. To use the submenu items, I must release the ALT key before pressing the underlined shortcut. This behavior is not typical for software for Microsoft Windows. As I understand your message, you have had the same results.
