Description domen 2015-12-25 18:36:30 UTC
It is not possible to assign key bindings with CTRL and ALT in Xamarin Studio anymore. This is also reported in the bug 16314, comment 22.

Steps to reproduce:
* In Xamarin Studio go to Tools -> Options... -> Key Bindings
* Select one command, for example "ASP.NET Controller..."
* Click on field Edit Binding
* Press for example CTRL + ALT + N on the keyboard.
* Field should read "Ctrl+Alt+N", but it reads only "N".

Not sure if this is related to bug 36033 and bug 36131.

Also, maybe related to this bug: using ALT + numeric code should return some character (for example ALT + 60 should return "<") but it does not.

I think I've figured it out.

You must change your input language in Windows Control panel to reproduce this bug. The following input languages produce these effects after pressing CTRL + ALT + N in Key bindings window:

* Slovenian ("slovenski") – produces "N"
* English (United Kingdom) – produces "Alt+N"
* English (United States) – produces "Ctrl+Alt+N"

It seems that different input languages produce different results. In English (US) it works as it should, but not in English (United Kingdom) and Slovenian.

(But regardless of the language input settings, "ALT + numeric code" still does not work.)
