Problems with measuring distance to other widgets via the ALT button on Windows 10


Whenever I want to measure a distance of a widget to other widgets I need to press and hold the ALT key on Windows PC and hover over a widget I want to measure the distance to. Unfortunately this also triggers the ALT menu acceleration process. For those who don’t know, pressing ALT + F for example will allow you to open the File menu in Axure.

This ALT menu acceleration is interfering with the distance guide feature in Axure. Because after I measured the distance I may want to nudge a widget into a position, but as soon as I will press an arrow key, an ALT menu will show on the top. I could press ALT again to kind of disable that menu acceleration, but I don’t always remember and it’s kinda frustrating anyway.

The only solution I found was to install an AutoHotkey script. Here’s a link’s_Windows_Mods/Alt_menu_acceleration_DISABLER.exe

If anyone has a better solution, please let me know.

I have the same problem. It is very annoying. Did you find a solution?

I have the same problem too. Guess this is still an open issue?
