I am using Chinese input method. When I work in MemoQ and use any shortcut key with "Alt", the cursor will jump to the top toolbar, in this case, I have to switch back to my input method. And quite frequently, the input method will shift from DBC case (half-angle) to SBC case (full-angle). Do you have any workaround for this issue? I want to use "Alt" key in my hotkeys because it's more convenient and conforms to my usual work habit. Other translation software supports it quite well. Thanks.
