[3.29b] Macro Bug, specificly Right arrow key.
 
I've found a weird bug, it can be reproduced accordingly.

New session
settings
Create a macro for right arrow key (and one for left) with a simple command such as e, w, respectively
go into the commandline and make sure its clear.
try right macro, nothing happens.
try left macro, it works
fill out some random text and hit enter so that it is highlighted
try right macro again, works


Its a weird and rather annoying bug.

You should not assign macros to the arrow keys. That will prevent you from moving the cursor to edit text in the command line, and potentially other text fields. The right arrow key is normally used for tab-completion and that is probably interfering with the macro. But in any case, assigning to the arrow keys is just a really bad idea.

I've never had a problem with it and I've used it for ages, I bind my movement keys to up down left right, ins, del, home, end, page up, page down, on the keypad one for each direction to move faster?
my keypad is bound for specific attacks and other commands.

Its worked well in the past but now for some reason messes up?

I don't suppose it could be made so macro's take higher priority then the default features? (like it was before?)

It's probably because of the recent change that bound the tab completion to the right-arrow so that people using the server-based tab completion in CMUDPro and TeSSH could still access the normal command line tab completion easily. I'll see if it's easy to check first if there is a macro assigned. But I still think it's a bad idea ;)

well, I enjoy having them there it free's up other keys, I use mouse if I want to correct something i'm typing, and I only really use auto completion after typing in some letters, so yeah...
