Problems with Shift key 'sticking down' when using keyboard over VNC 7 Years ago Karma: 0
I'm having issues with the Android VNC server - when using TightVNC to connect to my Galaxy S3, the left Shift key 'sticks' down when it is quickly pressed to capitalise a letter.

As a result, all subsequent letters are in caps as if CAPS LOCK has been pressed. The only way to 'unstick' the shift key is to press it in conjunction with a letter for a second time, and slowly. This seems to reset it.

This appears to be a bug in the VNC server app. I'm using the TouchPal keyboard on my phone, and Windows 8 x64 on the PC, if it has any bearing.

The bug is fully reproducible, if you need me to test anything or pull logs.

Any help would be much appreciated

Bug:

I'd like to report a similar issue. I'm using:
Phone: samsung galaxy S3 - Android 4.1.2 - Swype keyboard - VMLite VNC Server v1.3.3
PC: Windows 7 64Bit - Java application - HTML 5 and UltraVNC Portable.

Symptoms:
Using HTML 5 interface - Keyboard functions correctly
Using Java App - Shift key behaves like pressing the back button on the phone.
Ultra VNC - Shift key "Sticks" system behaves as if the key is permanently held down.

Any suggestions?

Did you get anywhere with this? I've got a problem with my shift key as well, so I'm wondering if it's related to this...
