Browser/web app & Ctrl key

Post by mchandler »

Any ideas why a browser-based app wouldn't detect that the Ctrl key is or has been pressed? The Ctrl key acts as a modifier when copying objects, but it's not working on this person's Mint 19.0 system. Works fine on my 19.1 setup, so I'm wondering if it's a key-mapping conflict.

There may be some problem with the ap? Though the chances of this are very negligible.

I ran the same app (SketchUp web/free) and it worked fine with both Chrome and Firefox.
