Hotstrings not working with accent (diacritics) in UWP

15 Nov 2017, 07:45

When a hotstring has a diacritic (ç, ã, ô) it doesn't trigger on UWP based apps such as Sticky Notes, Edge, OneNote, etc...
Tested on several machines (Surface Pro 3, LG Gram, built desktop system), several keyboards (ABNT2, US, mechanical, chiclet) and US and PT-BR layouts.

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

  1. Run sample script
  2. Open Sticky Notes and Notepad
  3. Try triggering sample hotstrings on both apps.
  4. Try triggering on Edge, Word 2016, Word Mobile... etc for comparison.
However, Fastkeys dev has reported that he couldn't reproduce the bug. Maybe it's related to windows locale?
Please, can anyone confirm, suggest fixes?
