    While on a call, if I press and hold any of the letter keys on keyboard, the call is disconnected. I disabled KeyCapsHack and everything is back to normal. Enabled it again and same thing happens. I have disconnected many calls trying to enter account numbers and passwords until it annoyed me enough to find the cause. I am quite certain it is KeyCapHacks. I tried changing settings in KeyCapHacks and it did not help.

    Anyone else have this problem? Is there a workaround?

    KepCapHack is a nice app but if it hangs up my calls inadvertantly that's not very nice.

    May I ask why you are pressing and holding keys while on the call? There may be a workaround for what you're trying to accomplish.

    Ha ha. That's actually a great feature! Though I suppose it shouldn't be doing that.

    Okay I looked at it and it is because when it goes to capitalize a key, it has to hit backspace to back over the lower-case version when it goes to capitalize it. And of course backspace is the key to hangup in the phone app.

    Whoah, cool. I'm no programmer, but I like finding out how this stuff works.

    Well I am not exactly holding the keys down. I have KeyCapsHack set to 250 ms for both double click and hold down, which works well for me entering text, but disconnects calls when I enter account names and passwords . Maybe if I up the KeyCapsHack durations it may help with the hangup problem.

    Hi Potatoho,
    Are you the author of KeyCapsHack? Great tool BTW. Anyway to fix it? I do like 250 ms for double click and hold down but it causes call hangups.

    I program account numbers into the "extra digits" in speed dialer. I do not program passwords in "extra digits" for security reasons. It is when I manually enter passwords using the thumbboard that calls are disconnected by KeyCapsHack. I could use the touch screen keypad to avoid the hangup problem but I prefer using the thumboard.

    No I'm not the author, but I use it a lot and I have patched my own copy to add some things I like. There's probably some simple ways to fix your issue, I'll try to take a look later.
