    CAPS LOCK STICKS IN AVID

    I'M ON A NEWER MAC BOOK PRO AND THE LATEST AVID 2018.12.1.  WHEN I USE THE CAPS LOCK IN AVID AND THEN GO TO WRITE AN EMAIL OR A POST ON AVID.COM, THE CAPS LOCK IS STUCK EVERYWHERE ELSE ON THE CPU.  I'M AFRAID TO USE CAPS LOCK IN AVID BC OF THIS ISSUE.  THE ONLY WAY TO RESOLVE IT IS TO RESTART.  I THINK IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH TITLE TOOL.  IF I SWITCH BETWEEN AVID AND ANOTHER APP, WHEN I COME BACK TO AVID THE CAPS LOCK WILL BE ON AGAIN, EVEN IF I TURNED IT OFF IN SAFARI.  OF COURSE LIKE RIGHT NOW IT SAYS CAPS LOCK IS OFF.  SUCH AN ANNOYING PROBLEM, PLEASE FIX!  (I ONLY WOULD'VE WRITTEN THAT LAST SENTENCE IN CAPS IF CAPS LOCK WAS WORKING).

    MBP 2016 TOUCHBAR, MACOS 10.14.3

    Me too -- although mine sticks in Avid. Once it's been turned on, it's impossible to turn CAPS LOCK off without closing down and restarting avid. 

     

    Judging from the punctuation above, I would guess that Seibel is running into more problems with this than I am.

    Updated to 10.14.4 and it has fixed the problem.

    I don't think this OS is supported yet, but no problems today.

    Ha, I thought it was my keyboard sticking. I feel like the problem was resolved with MC 2018.12.2 but haven't been scientific about that.

    The only solution I've found is to leave the OS keyboard up and hit caps lock there to undo it.

    Having this issue on 2018.12.8, OS Mojave 10.14.6

    The accessibility keyboard trick fixes it but pretty annoying.

    Hey Andi,

    I don't know if still works, but there used to be another way:

    I think a general workaround to prevent it, was to turn off the audio scrubbing before you switch to another app.

    Ah ha! Thank you! Will try when this inevitably happens to me later on today! Thanks!

    Re: CAPS LOCK STICKS IN AVID

    Wasn't there a setting (General?) on the versions up to 2018? Something like "Caps release" or as obscure as that. I'm on 2019 so can't check as CapsLock no longer does what it used to do.

    Yup, "Enable Caps Lock Protection". But that rarely helped. At least not for more recent OS/MC combinations.
