Alt+Number shortcuts in the View-menu break Windows Alt-Code character input method
Created originally on Bitbucket by Anonymous
TortioseHg uses the keyboard shortcuts Alt+0 for Show Task Tab and Alt+1 … Alt+4 to select the contents of the Task Tab (Revision Details, Commit, Search, or Synchronise)
Windows uses ‘Alt-Codes’ for input of off-keyboard characters, e.g. Alt+0176 for the degree sign °.
As Windows Alt-Codes require num-pad numbers: is it maybe possible to restrict the thg shortcuts to ‘normal’ numbers?
How to reproduce:
Open a repository in THG, open the Commit tab, place the cursor in the commit message. Press and hold the Alt key, then type on the num-pad: 0 1 7 6, then release Alt.
Expected outcome: the character ° is inserted into the commit message before the cursor
Actual outcome: the task tab is closed (Alt+0) , then opened again showing Revision Details (Alt+1). (Alt+7 and Alt+6 are then ignored)
