thank you 10.6.4 /ETA: It's not fixed

Post by barbarab » Sun Feb 21, 2010 2:14 pm

I had noticed that after I installed 10.6.3, I went from a fairly good typist to a really bad one.
I was dreading the upcoming week of programming.
So I was happy to see "Missed Keys / Command Line issue resolved" in the New Features.
Thank you, it makes a big difference-- and I'm glad it wasn't all in my head.

Actually maybe I spoke too soon... is anyone else still having problems with this? especially on double key strikes ...

With this version I have to be very careful not to outtype the console. If I am too fast I get missed keystrokes.

That's it exactly... the double key strokes are usually faster and it doesn't accept the second digit.

I think 10.6.4 helped, but did not totally resolve the issue.

I still notice missed numeric keys when typing channel numbers. E.g. when I type "152", it might come up as just "15" or "52". I have to look at the command line to make sure I am editing the right cue..

Also, still getting an occasional missed Go...!

Okay, it is NOT much better.
We are in cue write today and the designer is so frustrated with the missed key strokes that he is threatening to bring in his extra 500 series console and use that instead of the Palette.
Will this issue be resolved soon?

I'm going to try going back to 10.6.2 and see if that helps.

I too am having a lot of trouble with this. It's really embarrassing when you think you're typing 91 thru 100 full and what you get is 1 thru 100 at full - no subtlety there. I'm wondering if this could even be partially related to hardware ie. the keypad or to certain processors. I believe my board has one of the older generation of processors. But whatever it is, it would be nice to get it sorted out. I don't like having to slow down to accomodate the console. When we're under the gun(as we usually are), speed is of the essence.

This is soo frustrating in patch or in a live situation where you cannot undo.
