Changing the "hotkey" of ó and ń (because it is in fact ń and not ł, sorry my bad) would be as much counterproductive as clicking the mouse to close the dialog box each time it appears. These are quite frequent characters from Polish language and.. well, that's not the way to deal with this, it is as if I had to always type x instead of y for some reason. Or better yet, prepare the questions and answers in Notepad and paste them to Quiz Maker. Sure can do, but it's slow and ugly solution.
Some additional info:
1. as I already mentioned, *no other* program on my computer and on any computer that I used ever had this issue, except for Captivate, which admitted they had a hotkey for these character combinations.
2. I just installed iSpring demo on a laptop and voila, the same problem
3. I changed the keyboard (Control Panel->Regional and Language->Keyboard->Change Keyboards) to US International instead of Polish Programmer as it was before and the problem persists.
If you say that iSpring for sure does not have this hotkeys assigned to anything then it's really strange. I have a feeling that it might have something to do with language settings, but no idea what really.
I installed iSpring Presenter demo and it has the same problem. Additionally I discovered that it is sufficient to press Ctrl+o and Ctrl+n to have the dialog box, no need to press Ctrl+Alt (with Alt, it types Polish letters into a text box, along with showing the dialog box).
Additionally, I noticed that pressing Ctrl+s launches Save Quizz window. It's ok, just noticed it. No other Ctrl+letter hotkey works.
