No problem - the poll was a place to get specific things like this, but more it was useful to get a sense of broader issues (eg responsiveness was a big one) - raising this particular one now is just as good for individual issues too.

Even making it fully configurable, there still needs to be a default setup, ideally one which suits a good proportion of users. There are some users who never change their settings.

Just an update on this, we believe we've fixed the issue so you should be able to use allow editing directly in cells again. If you want to try it now, you can download the latest alpha build: Otherwise, it should be in NVDA 2019.1 when it is released. ^QC

Ok thank you - and yes, if you did crash NVDA, (or the whole computer), it should keep the log in the nvda-old.log at least.

You can change log level from general settings - NVDA+control+G or you can press NVDA+Q then down arrow to "Restart with debug logging enabled" .

I just sent an email asking for a bit more info - my guess is that whatever is causing problems is affecting both versions similarly so if we fix one, the other will also work.

In %temp% you will find nvda.log which is the log created the last time ANY version of NVDA was run (installed or portable), nvda-old.log is the previous log, and nvda_crash.dmp is a crash dump created when NVDA itself crashes.

Definitely not desired behaviour. Something certainly playing up, though hard to tell exactly what. In your %temp% folder should be any log files ande crash dumps, if you could email them to info@nvaccess, I'll have a look. See for info on log files. ^QC

As you say, the majority of users don't (& shouldn't need to) use tools like object navigation. I'd keep it simple: Explain that first of all A) you need a way to access every control with the keyboard & B) have everything labelled & identified - that is 90% of the way there ^QC
