I know there are already a lot of posts about keys in plugins, but i could not find an answer for that specific problem. It's not possible to enter a space key within the TextEditor component in our plugin on OSX with Reaper. Space directly starts and stops playing the arrangement in reaper. I like that behavoir, but i want to be able to enter a space key when the TextEditor field has the focus. I already have set setWantsKeyboardFocus(true) without any success.
What can i do to receive the space key for text input?
