Description David Gibson 2017-11-16 03:53:11 UTC
Description of problem:

'C' and 'D' are default keyboard shortcuts for Continuous and Dual view modes.  So far so good.

But those keys are trapped to mean those shortcuts, even when the search box is focussed, meaning you can't type 'c' or 'd' in the search string.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start atril on some pdf document
2. Press Ctrl-F to focus search box
3. Press 'c'

Actual results:

Continuous view mode toggles, no change to contents of search box.

Expected results:

'c' is added to search string.

Can you please file out an upstream report?

Comment 2 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2017-11-21 21:38:08 UTC
I think i found a solution, if you can't wait please test

Comment 3 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2017-11-22 17:27:05 UTC
Can you please test this scratch build?

Comment 4 David Gibson 2017-11-23 01:47:31 UTC
umbus:~$ rpm -qa | grep atril

Unfortunately, no change in behaviour.  Pressing 'c' or 'd' (and I think a couple of other keys are affected) triggers menu items rather than typing into the search panel.

Comment 5 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2017-11-23 08:41:29 UTC
Opps, i picked the wrong SRPM, my fault.
Please try this build
To be sure check the SPEC file from SRPM. You should see those patches:

Patch1:         atril_0001-Use-a-global-array-for-view-accel-action.patch
Patch2:         atril_0002-shell-forward-accels-to-the-focused-widget.patch
Patch3:         atril_0003-shell-Remove-ev_window_set_view_accels_sensitivity.patch
Patch4:         atril_0004-shell-remove-view_actions_focus_out_cb.patch

Several keys are affected.
d, c, w, f, p, n and using crtl+left/right-arrow (for navigation in search field) should work again.

Comment 6 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2017-11-23 08:42:02 UTC
Please test again.

Comment 7 David Gibson 2017-11-23 09:44:51 UTC
The packages linked in comment 5 work well for me.  I can type normally in the search box again.


Comment 8 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2017-11-23 10:01:09 UTC
Good, new build coming soon.
Btw. 1.19.4 has 'caret-navigation' as new feature, but it isn't documented at the moment.
Simply type F7.
