This used to work - it no longer workds : See email report frmo Adam Winget below:

Hello,

RAlt, RShift and Appkey as layer modifiers are no longer working. When I am in the Setup screen, the layer visibly switches when I hit the left side version of the modifiers but it does nothing when I push the right side counterparts. The Appkey is my 3rd layer modifier and instead of the Setup switching layers like it used to it is simply opening the context menu on whatever control has focus. I think it happened in February. I made an AHK script that is fixing the problem for now:

 

RShift::
Send {LShift Down}
KeyWait RShift
Send {LShift Up}
Return

RAlt::
Send {Alt Down}
KeyWait RAlt
Send {Alt Up}
Return

 

However it does not seem to work for the AppsKey and I am unsure if RCtrl is broken too because I do not use Ctrl as a modifier.

 

Keep up the good work and thank you for doing it! XMBC is awesome. Been a while since I donated, I will do it again soon.
