Summary0004323: Windows focus, popup/alert when selecting function off main window
DescriptionThis was fixed in pre6, but is now happening again in pre7/8 -
If you have the main window selected and hit S or R to open up the child windows, DR or windows is alerting me. As in its complaining that I dont have the child window selected/opened at the time when trying to perform a function - hence the beep/alert.
TagsNo tags attached.

This is confusing, as I didn't change anything with regard to the areas you describe in between pre6 and pre8.

I just tried to repro this, but I failed to do so. When the main window or even the layers dialog is focused the "S" shortcut to toggle the surface inspector works fine as expected.

Are you absolutely sure that this is something specific to pre8, and it didn't happen in pre7? You can run both of them side-by-side (when launching the portable DR versions) and check if they function differently.

If it's reproducible for you, maybe a video would help?

It happened in Pre7 and now 8 - I will make a video of it :-)

I have the same problem. I've been turning my speakers off while editing.

I'll see what I can do.

I can confirm that behaviour, it's definitely bound to having the focus set on some buttons in the GUI. It doesn't happen when you left-click in one of the render views.

I'm afraid that there's no point in any of "my" code that I can touch to fix this. I've tried to signal back to Windows that the key event has been processed, and I've tried to signal "key event ignored", but the sound just keeps playing. It seems to be default Windows behaviour to play that sound when you focus a button and press a key that has no function in that dialog.

You can easily see this by opening Windows Explorer and RMB any file to show its properties. Hit the "G" key which shouldn't do anything in the properties and you'll hear the same sound.

For me I've only found the workaround to unmap the "Default Beep" sound in the Control Panel > Sound dialog.

Fair enough fella, and removing the windows sound scheme is good enough for me, as I normally have that set to no sounds etc.

I turned off the default beep and all is well now.
