Add Child in Yed on Mac OS X Yosemite dupicates element

0 votes

If I add child element with hotkey on Mac OS X Yosemite in Yed Editor 3.14.2 I get two child elements instead of one.

The same error happens when I use duplicate hotkey.

Cannot reprodruce this on Mac OSX 10.10.3 with yEd 3.14.2 on Java 1.8.0_45.
Which version of yEd are you using?
It seems that bug is only with Cyrillic labels. I recorded video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ajXhX4Q3U8 to represent bug.
Thank you very much for the additional information.

After some investigation, this problem turned out to be an error in Oracle's Java Runtime Environment versions 7 and 8 for Mac OSX. They have been made aware of the problem, but seem to have implemented an incomplete fix (the corresponding error report [macosx] apple.laf.useScreenMenuBar regression comparing with jdk6 is marked as "fixed").

Unfortunately, the only workaround/solution I have found is running yEd on Apple's old Java 6 instead of Oracle's newer Java 7 or 8.
