Strange behavior shortcuts

This probably not a programming question, but hopefully somebody knows the answer.

I have a command plugin that can be started using a shortcut (standard c4d functionality).
However, on a Mac it is not easy to define such a shortcut.
Using control, alt, command or shift in the shortcut leads to strange results.
On a PC it is no issue!

Is this a know issue and can I do something about it (instruct the user)?

Hi Pim,

we are not aware of any issues with shortcuts on Mac. After all entire Cinema relies on this mechanism. Can you give us some more details, what effects you experienced? And perhaps also describe, how you configure the shortcut. Is it via Customize Commands Dialog?

Yes, that surprised me too.
I will investigate further and get more data.

Note that sommetime (for exemple in GeDialog) you must use shortcut in Message instead of Command, since you can miss them.

Then what I usually do is member variable(_isMyShortcutPress) and set it into Message which set to True or False according the value.

Don't know if somethings similar can happend with command plugin where Execute would fail to catch some shortcut as Command fail in GeDialog.

Hope it's help ;)
