In 0.3.4.2 there seems to be a problem with MS Edge and S+ text extension.
When text extension is on I can't type anything in MS Edge forms.
I CAN type in the address bar, but anything on a web page (e.g. Google search input) produces only spaces. It seems to recognize keystrokes, but no letters (only spaces) appear.

The Ignore list doesn't help.
I can type as soon as I turn S+ off.

Ha! I never use Edge, but use it from time to time to test website layouts for work and had the same issue, but never found S+ was the cause :)

I'll have to take a look into that.

Should be fixed in 0.3.4.3.

In the code, I attach to the window's thread to be able to properly extract the character being typed. For some reason in that code, I was also setting the window as the foreground. Generally this shouldn't be an issue, but Edge has an interesting/uncommon window structure/hierarchy so this resulted in the window focus being changed every time you pressed a character. It ultimately came back to Edge being in focus, but during that short time, the key which was pressed was sent (I assume) to a different (hidden) Edge window resulting in the input being lost.

I'm no longer setting the foreground window in that code and it seems to be working fine in Edge and a couple other applications I tested.

Thanks for narrowing this down to an S+ issue! I'd been going crazy the few times I opened edge, I would type in the Run dialog and copy/paste into Edge....lol
