Description Alexey Pelykh 2015-11-03 09:40:00 UTC
Description of Problem:

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Change keyboard layout to Russian (e.g.)
2. Launch Xamarin Studio

Actual Results:
Shortcuts don't work, it's even impossible to switch keyboard layout to normal in most cases. Even if switching to US works, Xamarin still behaves incorrectly.

Expected Results:
Keyboard shortcuts work in all layouts. No issues with text typing.

How often does this happen?
Everytime (with launch conditions).
