      I posted this in the regular bugs forum because so many people seem to be having problems with it...if anyone figures out exactly how to reproduce it post your steps or whatever in there

          Yap, had the same problem last game too, could chat with the chat bubble on the top left and got fixed through restarting. Strangely though I could still close the shop window with the ESC button, hotkeys and everything else wasn't working...
          I got the game on borderless window and was tabbed too, when the game started, so maybe it really has something to do with that

            Even F1 wasn't working, Enter wasn't too so i couldn't even say something. ALL hotkeys weren't working, got it in my first game, can't imagine why it happened. As described before a client restart solved it.

            EDIT: OH YEAH , i just remembered it was my first game after changing to Borderless Window mode, so i think it have something to do with that.

              I heard that typing in hero select while the timer runs to 0:00 creates that bug. The game still "thinks" you are in that chat window.... read it somewhere in another thread, I will try to reproduce as soon as I have time.

              Edit: Right now, I would not recommend typing in the picking screen when it gets close to 0:00, just to be safe.

                I have actually done this several times to have it both break the keyboard, cause the h bug or do nothing at all so over all both the keyboard failure issue and the H bug are extremely random.

                For anyone else who decides to add to this please add the game id you were in when it happened this will help me and others find more info when trying to repo the issue.

                  It happens with me too. Also, sometimes(frequently) the "I" stops working.

                    I have the keyboard problem and i'm an avid user of the shift+tab steam design to use their web-browser and speak to friends. I'm not sure if this is related, because it doens't always happen.

                        Just happened to me in a game. After loading I was able to move my hero with the mouse, but my keyboard wasn't responding.

                              I've never had it happen yet after almost 200games, so seems rare enough, but I've seen plenty of ppl randomly get it, would be nice to pinpoint what's the issue. I play windowed, do shift tab to chat with people but rarely/never use the prefight chat.
