:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

:point_down: DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). LIMIT TO ONE BUG PER THREAD.
Hotkeys for scrolling don’t work when shift, ctrl, or alt are used in hotkey. I tried the default arrow keys and those work fine. I also tried the turn gate hotkey which is ctrl+wheel. That works fine. So it isn’t unset the gate turn hotkey so as not to have a conflict and re-assign ctrl+wheel to scroll, doesn’t work for scrolling. Tried with alt, tired it with shift. Doesn’t work. Any combination of ctrl, shift, and alt when paired with a wheel scroll won’t work as your scroll hotkey for any direction (up, down, left, right).

Related, as I was writing this up confirming different things, specifically alt+shit+wheel down would not rotate a gate. alt+wheel will rotate a gate. ctrl+shift+wheel will rotate a gate, but not alt+shift+wheel. Perhaps then the bug isn’t isolated to scrolling, but in general the wheel when paired with alt, shift, or control for a hotkey, that general combination can exhibit buggy behavior.

Just following up on this. I haven’t seen any response and issue persists in most recent build.

Just checking up on this again. Still an issue in the new Mountain Royals build.
