Dear VMD users,

I tried to define some keys via 'user add key {}' and realized that all
combinations like Control-key, Alt-key, Shift-key do not work at all.
When logging the commands I see that the combinations do not reach VMD,
for example the message I get when pressing 'i' or 'Shift-i' or 'Alt-i'
is always the same: "Type 'user add key i {...}' to use this key"
Also, for example 'g' and 'G' should show different behaviour, right?
They are, however, the same as 'g'.
I am using VMD 1.9.1 on Windows 7. Thanks for any hints.
