ULTIMA VIII: Keymapping for left-click does not function with books

Reported by: bliznik Owned by: OMGPizzaGuy
Priority: low Component: Engine: Ultima
Version: Keywords: Ultima VIII left-click
Cc: Game: Ultima VIII: Pagan

Description

If I keymap the left-click to a keyboard key (e.g. [Alt]), I can mouse-over a book and open it by tapping the [Alt] key twice. However, I can not advance pages or close the book with the [Alt] key anymore. I can only advance pages or close the book by actually left-clicking with my mouse.

Partial fix in https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/commit/133552a89af6e5db70cd0d5209348fbf48270086#diff-abd83068c30163d9c7f7cb53ac086cab6e6f929ce6a95ce082ff6ba8354e987e

In-game menus need to disable game keymapping to handle text input, but now allow for fallback to global keymapping. The global keymap can also map left click (Interact) under options -> keymaps -> "GUI" section

Thanks again for the bug report. There's an additional workaround in commit bc89ecb and will be available in the next release.

Books and scrolls now have key support. The escape key will close and space key will advance to the next page.
