In Response to: [Help!] Dead keys not working - is it a Ztree issue ? (Laurent Duchastel)

I did some testing

Win8.1, ZTree 2.4.181
Added French (Canada)
Switched input methods by the system tray

I ran osk.exe to see where the keys are
;èà are right of l, i.e. don't need to dead keys to get them
right of p, then a,e,o gives â,ê,ô
shift right of p, then i,o gives ï,ö
ç two right of p
I couldn't see how to do the "¸" (tail on ç) as a dead key
AltGr ` or ~, then e, o gives è õ in ZTree, but using ctrl-alt instead does not in ZTree but does in cmd and Firefox

So you might have to use AltGr to get to the ` and ~ dead keys in ZTree.
Also the other characters that can be accessed by Ctrl-Alt-? work in Firefox but in ZTree they give "?" instead, for those AltGr-? has to be used in ZTree.

As for the reason why, I don't know.
