  • Hero Specific Hotkeys Disables Use of Similarly Mapped Alt Key Functions

    I was testing out the usage of the newly added hero hotkeys, but it apparently causes an incompatibility with functions attached to the same keys mapped to spells but utilizing "alt". For instance, I have my items mapped to Alt+Q, Alt+W, Alt+E, Spacebar, Alt+S, Alt+D (as a remnant of former days playing HoN before Dota 2), but when I tried using items on heroes I activated hero-specific hotkeys on, only items mapped to Spacebar and Alt+S worked. If I removed a hotkey, such as Q, W, E, or D from the hero-specific hotkeys, the respective Alt+hotkey item functionality returned. I did some additional testing and also made sure that this wasn't specific to items; any function mapped to alt+spell hotkey causes a loss of functionality when playing a hero where hero-specific hotkeys are enabled. As the functionality currently exists, I can't activate hero-specific hotkeys on any heroes without losing the ability to use some of my items.
