Control-backtick does not work on Windows (UK Keyboard)

Control-backtick does not work on Windows (UK Keyboard)

Postby p.f.moore on Fri Mar 15, 2013 1:48 pm

I'm using Sublime Text 2 and 3, and the same issue occurs in both. Control+backtick (defined as "Show Console") does not register. From checking sublime.log_commands, it looks like this key is not being recognised at all. However, Control+single quote does work for "Show Console" - even though it is not defined as a key binding at all in the defaults.

This is with a UK keyboard (where backtick is on the top left key, just above tab, and single quote is on the key to the right of semicolon). I've tried a keyboard macro program, and it reports that backtick on my keyboard is virtual key 223.

Really no response to this? I'm not reporting it so much as a question, but as a bug. Is there a better place for straight bug reports? (The "support" page directs me here).

You can enter sublime.log_input(True) in the console to see what keys Sublime Text thinks are being sent to it

Yes, UK here too and ctrl+apostrophe (right of semicolon) does the trick here under windows, but backtick does not work.

On my linux laptops however it's the backtick key. The confusion between the two OSes is quite annoying, but not nearly so annoying as not being able to rid myself of the menubar in distraction free mode under linux ;)

None at all. It sees Ctrl+' as Ctrl+` and does not see any input from Ctrl+`. Same on both ST2 and ST3. This is definitely a bug.

I am also having this problem. But I am using a normal US style keyboard.

Despite the following being in the keybindings file,

Code: Select all
{ "keys": ["ctrl+`"], "command": "show_panel", "args": {"panel": "console", "toggle": true} },


Code: Select all
ctrl+'


Is what is working for me.
