/ Id-Extras Forum / Form Maker Error – Not accepting keystrokes sometimes
December 16, 2021 at 12:32 am #6215
Occasionally, the FormMaker plugin dialog box for entering scripts stopped accepting keystrokes, only mouse input. So we could copy and paste if you used right click > paste, but not using CTRL+V. I haven’t been able to establish a firm reason the keystroke input stops being accepted, but it generally happens while entering keystroke scripts applied to a form field.
Has anyone else run into this error?December 17, 2021 at 12:16 am #6461
What version of InDesign are you using, and what operating system (Mac, Windows) and version?
Also, what exact version of FormMaker are you using?

This has happened with the last several versions of InDesign but I am currently running v 17.01. I am on a windows machine running Windows 10 enterprise and my FormMaker version is 3.0.8

Does this happen consistently, or only sometimes?
I have the same setup as yourself (Windows 10 and 17.01) and it’s not happening to me. But I definitely recall it happen occasionally in the past.
By the way, the latest version of FormMaker is 3.1.0. It may be worth downloading that and seeing if it fixes the problem.

I will also try updating FormMaker and see if that fixes anything.

I’ve seen the behaviour myself, but I’m not managing to replicate it.
Let me know if 3.1.0 fixes it for you.
Does it happen with a specific document, or with all docs?
If there’s a specific document where you’re seeing it happen, I’ll be happy to take a look if you email it to me.
