XQuartz Endless Keyboard Repeat on MacBook

  AppleUzer 09:41 30 Oct 2018

When I run Inkscape, I can use basic drawing functions. However, when I enter text - like changing values in a dimension box - then pressing any key causes a continuous string of that character to be typed - like keyboard repeat. The Terminal application on XQuartz (whatever that is for?) also has the endless keyboard repeat feature, making me think that the issue is with XQuartz not Inkscape.

I have deleted and re-installed both XQuartz and Inkscape.

Any help welcome.

The OS is Version 10.14 The computer is a MacBook Pro XQuartz is 2.7.11

Does this happen with any other program? If it does, suspect a sticky key
