Re: [tise-devel] Tise comments

Dear Grisha,

If you plan further development of Tise, I can send you a list of
problematic syllables that I built when inputting the entries of the Chandra
Das dictionary. Tise had problems with these syllables although they are all
"legal" EWTS.

It appears that my earlier suggestion to extend Tise to support also input
for Sanskrit (Devanagari script & transliteration) did not find any
additional echo. Or am I mistaken? (The Chandra Das dictionary contains
several thousand Sanskrit strings, and for this input job alone a handy
input routine like Tise would have immense merits...)

Hello Chris,

Thanks for your feedback on Tise. Can you please tell me your version
and build date of Tise, as shown in About dialog?

Indeed, a bug in Tise. Thanks for reporting.

Known issue. I thought the latest build of Tise doesn't have this.

As pointed by many, Caps lock is not a good choice for a toggle key.
It will be fixed as soon as I have enough time to add the function for
custom choice of a toggle key.

'x' key?
