Weird behavior when hotstring contains remapped keys

02 Nov 2018, 00:02

I have this hotstring:
itll::it'll
It works as intended. However, sometimes I forget I have it, and I manually type out it'll, then it'd turn into iit'll.
At first I didn't know why, but then I found out it's because my ' (apostrophe) was a remapped key. If I use the original ' on the keyboard as opposed to my remapped ', there's no such issue.

Is it bug? If not, how do I avoid such behavior? Thanks!!

By default, the hotstring hook does not take artificial input into account. To make the remapped apostrophe trigger hotstrings, you need to make sure it's using SendEvent and set its #InputLevel/SendLevel above default.
