Combo alt + number doesn't work

See original GitHub issue

Hello everybody, I have a hotkey that combined from ‘alt’ key and a number (from 0 - 5) key. But it doesn’t work. My code here:

private filterHotkey = new Hotkey(['alt+1', 'alt+2', 'alt+3', 'alt+4', 'alt+5', 'alt+0'], function (event: KeyboardEvent): boolean {

I just changed ‘alt’ key to ‘ctrl’ key, it works normally. But I think that will be perfect if we can work with both ‘alt’ and ‘ctrl’. Do you have any idea?

though it seems the base implementation here uses Mousetrap behind the scene, and I do not think Mousetrap supports key combination such as “a + b”, it does support sequences though.

I wouldn’t call it “deliberate” per se, it just a scenario we have yet decided to support, as it require some breaking changes in core code of the library (ng-keyboard-shortcuts), however. it is in my roadmap, and should be added in the future. As for this library, I cannot provide any further insight in regards to their decision.
