    It is more a reference bug report than an actual bug report, as it is fixed with one condition which is easy to guess with the manual on the keyboard object, still would be nice if we didn't have to do this IMHO.

  • This is an issue with the browsers/NWJS interacting with Windows hotkeys, not C2.

  • Yeah, browsers let you tab in to canvas fallback content (for some reason), and then pressing enter selects a link.

    I vaguely remember reporting this some time ago, but IIRC they wouldn't fix it since it's an accessibility feature or something. You could just delete the fallback content (stuff inside the <canvas> tag) after exporting if it bothers you...

  • To be fair I didn't expect it to be fixed, but wanted to have a trace of it somewhere (and the workaround that will let you have the fallback of the canvas without this issue) as it affects pretty much all non NW.Js C2 games.
