Symptom

All keyboard shortcuts, including fundamental shortcuts like “J / K / L”, SpaceBar, and so on, does NOT work with Premiere Windows if IME (input method editor) is activated on Windows.

 

Why this bug is severe

For people in Japan / China / Korea, IME is used to input Japanese / Chinese / Korean texts on Windows, and it’s quite natural for Premiere uses in such countries to activate IME because of searching media files in Media Browser, creating Japanese text by Type Tool in Essential Graphics, etc.
As you know, the keyboard shortcuts is very important for professional video editors, who is Premiere’s main target users obviously, to create video clips efficiently.
Inability to use keyboard shortcuts with IME really frustrates professional video editors, and it severely damages their workflow efficiency.

 

Steps to reproduce

  1. Install IME on Windows.
  2. Launch Premiere Pro.
  3. Turn on IME.
  4. Put a video on timeline.
  5. Hit “J” or “L” key or SpaceBar on keyboard. And, you’ll see these shortcuts doesn’t work. See the attached screenshot.

Is Anybody There?

We've experienced this issue for a long time, and inability to use keyboard shortcuts with IME makes Premiere less useful for professional video editing in TV studios.

Hi again.

Is anybody from Adobe able to look into this usability issue?

We contacted Adobe Japan reps, and they instructed us to write issue/bug reports to the forum.

Not sure why nobody from Adobe haven't taken care of the issues.
