Chinese(注音) icon

#Xamarin Version 6.11(build 15)

1. keyboard switch to Chinese(注音)
2. copy paste fail (can't input any word)
3. keyboard switch to English
4. copy paste work!
5. also try Chinese(簡體中文)
6. copy paste fail!
7. When I use "caps lock" to switch to English (can type English but my input icon is still Chinese)
8. copy paste fail!

*It seems like only can copy paste when I use "control+space" to change language to other language

Actual Results:
My keyboard doesn't work only in Chinese Mode(注音)/(簡體中文)

Expected Results:
Please let me copy/paste in Chinese Mode(注音),because I don't want to switch language everytime.
And I need to copy/paste several times...

How often does this happen?

Hi Jou-An

I couldn't repro your issue here.


Can you give us more information or screencast your issue?

Thank you. :-)

Thanks so much for taking the time to submit this report! I can confirm using the latest Visual Studio 2017 for Mac Preview version 7.1 I am able to reproduce this issue. Marking this report as CONFIRMED. 

However, I have found that it is possible to work around this issue by right-clicking and choosing paste. Therefore because the functionality works, but the keyboard shortcut does not I am reducing the severity of this bug to MINOR
