    Spare skill point alt+click actually levels the skill

    There's inconsistencies with alt+click and shift+click. The game should not interpret alt+click or shift+click as normal clicks.

    I think the alt+click announcing is a recently introduced bug.
    Repro steps:
    1. Start a game & pick any hero
    2. Try to announce one of your non-ultimate abilities with alt+click
    Actual result: No announcement but rather you leveled up that ability
    Expected result: Ability xyz > Not Learned (announcement)

    Same thing happens if you try to queue up an item's individual components from the shop. Shift+click or shift+ctrl+click is interpreted like a normal left click. The view changes from the item and it's components to the component view and its possible upgrades.

    Here's a video showcasing both issues with a keyboard overlay:


    As you can see it's not comfortably possible to queue up the remaining aether lens components because the view changes constantly.

    A more general title would be: Mouse clicking with key modifiers [alt/shift/ctrl] behaves like a normal mouse click

    Ok it's not because keyboard modifiers are ignored. If you have a spare skill point you can't cast abilities with left click at all. Clicking on the skill icon prefers leveling up the ability instead of casting/announcing/etc.

    Well the usage of Slacks irritated me and I didn't get your point

    This is especially stupid when you just hit level 6 and want to announce your cooldown on a normal ability. This levels the ability instead and you can not level up your ultimate.
