[1.193] Typing square brackets in a text field registering as switching tabs

LoneGunman shared this bug 2 years ago
Solved

This is new.

If I pull up the terminal UI and attempt to type in the Name field for an item (in this case it was a Control Station), typing a square bracket triggers the switch to a new tab (i.e. typing a left square bracket "[" will switch from the Control Panel tab to the Inventory tab).

Since I'm using a mod that relies on me typing square brackets (Automatic LCDs), this is a breaking issue.

I've tried this on other blocks (e.g. button panel, cargo container), same behavior.

They added a new control recently which changes what occurs. You can fix this by going into settings

"Controls->Miscellaneous->Prev/Next color or camera".


Unbind/Rebind and you are good to go.

//////////////////////////////////////////////

On the topic of bug however, this control does not necessarily specify that it does what it does in the Terminal UI which should warrant some clarification. Furthermore, that control should be disabled WHEN working in a text box so this is still a bug.

Thanks for the workaround. I sort of guessed that was what that was for but since it referred to color/camera, I didn't want to assume anything (i.e. that maybe they're just not stopping propagation of the key/command or validating it properly based on the context).

But the workaround will help in the short term until they can fix that so thanks again!

I agree that the tab-switching should be disabled when the text box is selected. You can still type brackets, but it switches tabs at the same time. If you go back to the text box, the bracket you typed is still there. You can copy-paste the name of the block you are searching for until this is fixed.

Farrell just had a melt down when he discovered that issue, poor guy.

FIX URGENTLY PLEASE.

This is seriously so annoying. I always flag my stuff with them. I want the camera binds to stay the same, but I want to be able to type square brackets too.
