I have an auto hotkey script that binds alt+i to the up arrow. Whenever I use intellij and try to navigate the caret upward with my binding it will only move the caret one position upward before it starts inserting the letter 'i' where ever the caret is located. In order to move the caret upward with my binding I have to physically press alt+i then physically release both buttons and repress them to move the caret upward again. This is incredibly annoying. Ideally I could hold down the alt key and press 'i' as many times as I want and still have the caret move upward.
Moving caret upward 1 position: alt+i
Moving caret upward 2 positions: alt+i , physically release both keys, alt+i
Any other text editor or IDE I have used allows for me to press and hold the alt key while pressing 'i' as much as needed to move the caret to the correct position.
I thought that maybe it was because it was an auto hotkey script. I remapped space+i to be the up arrow within Intellij but still have the same effect. Ideally it would function like the up arrow. I should be able to hold both alt+i down and the caret should continuously move upward. Anyone have any idea how to fix this bug?
