When I enter text, it often gets rendered contrary to the indicator light on my CAPS LOCK key. I enter a name or comment with the and it appears as ALL CAPS requiring me to press the CAPS LOCK key and start again. The next text field, with the CAPS LOCK key on, I start typing and the text is rendered as ALL CAPS and it does this seemingly at random. This wastes time on my end and causes problems when I hit the SUBMIT button on FamilySearch and then realize that I submitted a reason, in ALL CAPS. This only happens on RootsMagic.

As I get older I am reminded of an older person who once said they wished the Shift key had never been invented. Now with the Caps Lock key doing its thing, I am strongly agreeing with that feeling. Try a different keyboard and see if you get the same results.

Restart the computer and it will resolve the issue.

I would prefer that RootsMagic fix the problem.

RootsMagic 8 will be a native Mac version without a wrapper that causes some translation issues like this.
