Re: bug: when unchecking the keys not to use as modifiers, they become rechecked upon restarting nvda.

I'm 100 percent sure it does, and I totally understand, I used to be in the unix/Linux stuff every day. So far nuking the config helped. Now I have to figure out how to not spell space with cf eloquence, I'll ask that one on my mastodon.

Ok, so this is a person w/a Linux background speaking, but, does the folder where your configs are being saved have proper write permissions?

This is a straight windows box, and a regular copy of nvda. I don't
do portable copies if I can help it. I'm not looking forward to nuking
my install, I know I can back them up with a portable, however that
will suck major.

Sarah, is this a straight Windows box or are you perchance running it
thru a mac or vm? Also, is this an installed or portable version?

I just tried this with the current NVDA version 2022.3.2, installed.
The setting is saved properly. I manually saved the configuration
before exiting NVDA but I don't think using automatic saving of
settings would matter.

No not at all, follow my steps and you hopefully can repro.
Basically, uncheck insert or what ever modifiers you don’t want to
use. Restart nvda and those boxes will become checked. Make sure
save config upon exit is checked.

I don't know if this is somehow related to what happened last
evening,on my Hp Pavillion Windows10 Laptop which is a bit over 4
years old: So I powered on my Laptop just fine; I was able to use
NVDA commands via the Caps-lock key just fine without issues, but
about
5-10 minutes later, not only the NVDA command key didn't work, but
the Tab, Escape or the Number1 key on the top number row! So I
restarted the computer, and the above-mentioned keys worked great
for about 5-10 minutes, after which no go! not even restarting NVDA!
So I restarted the computer a 2nd time, and used it over an hour
without issues! with all the expected keys working just fine!

So might this be related to what you're talking about in this thread?

Can anyone reproduce this?


Bug

When nvda is restarted, the use insert key option becomes
rechecked even after the user unchecks it.


Steps

1.Launch nvda

2.Go to settings

3.Go to keyboard

4.Choose laptop (not sure if desktop will work the same

5.Uncheck insert under the section where it lists 4 check boxes
for nvda modifiers.

6.Hit ok

7.Restart nvda


Expected

Nvda should not recheck the box for the keys you unchecked


Actual

The box becomes rechecked upon restarting nvda

Windows 11 22H2 (x64) build 22621.819

Nonvisual Desktop Access (NVDA)

Version: 2022.3.2
