Jacob commented on NETBEANS-639:
--------------------------------

This issue is still present in 11.1 - Shortcuts cannot be defined or used with 
the Right-Alt key.

Is there any chance that this can be addressed?

This is a major usability issue for me, and I've switched back to using 8.0.2 
for now.

>  * This becomes an accessibility issue.

>  * Long-term there may also be degenerative physical effects.  Especial for 
> people with conditions affected by this limitation.
>  * It looks like EVERY Right-Alt key combination will NOT work.
