Hi - Good afternoon. I have a problem. I am not able to type the character "r" into the FormSpider editor. "R" is working, but not "r". BTW, it is not a problem with key board, because I have tested it in the notepad and many other applications, and it is working in other applications, but not in FormSpider.

Did anyone encountered this or similar issue now or in the past? Looking if anyone has a solution.

Hi Viswa,

This is a strange bug introduced with one of the latest versions of Chrome. It only happens in the XML Editor. For now, we have a few workarounds:

1) Don't use Chrome on Windows (Chrome on Mac works just fine) 2) Use another browser preferably Firefox 3) Use Chrome in Windows and try to use intelli-sense and copy paste to work around the problem.

We are aware of the issue and it is in our to do list. The solution make not make it to the next version though.

Kind Regards,
