    That "h" thing is really weird, but it doesn't stop you from using "hold position" when playing. I have experienced it a few times and I have no idea why it happens.

      Yea, happened to me as well.

      My keyboard just wasnt working at all. Had to restart the game client and it worked again.

        Just happened to me too. Only thing I noticed was that caps lock was on, other than that I have no idea what could have possibly caused that.
        Requires Dota 2 restart.

          Try doubletapping F1 when you lose keyboard support. That's what I do and it comes back every time.

            I have the same problem (keyboard doesn't respond at all, not only 'h') many times I play.

            How exactly it occurs I don't know but I think it has something to do with tabbing (I use borderless window though), because I only had that problem when I tabbed.

              This has happened to me too near the start of a match. Sadly I have no steps to reproduce it

                I've experienced this a few times today while playing, that my keyboard suddenly stops working _totally_ once I get into a new game. The only fix I have found for it is to restart the game and reconnect, leaving and reconnecting doesn't do it.

                  Happens to me frequently lately aswell. Manually bringing up the chat ingame still allows me to chat, chatting outside a game in the chat lobby is possible aswell. Just using the keyboard ingame for playing purposes doesn't work. Cannot reproduce. Requires me to restart the game to get it working again.

                    I think I found a link between being tabbed out when loading into a new game that may cause this happen, its happened to me 3 times where I was alt tabbed out of the game (both full screen and windowless) talking on steam or typing on another program then once I went back into the game I had no control over the keyboard in game.

                        This has happened to me as well. Possibly having to to with alt-tabbing, but I cannot reproduce. Will edit post if I can reproduce it.

                              This is also a randomly occurring problem for me and several of my friends.
