When I enter ESC
\[Infinity] into an
InputField, such as that below, the input is rejected when I hit tab or return.
The same thing happens if I enter Greek characters, such as ESC
However if I enter
1 + \[Infinity] it is accepted, evaluates to
Infinity, and is displayed as
∞. Odd that
∞ is supported as output but not input. Also entering
Infinity works. Likewise,
0 + \[Epsilon] is accepted and evaluates to
ϵ. The input
\[Epsilon]\[Epsilon] is also accepted.
No doubt it happens for other characters such as ESC
E is accepted. Again, if ESC
eeESC is part of a longer expression, it works fine.
Is this a known limitation? I did not find it in the documentation. Or is it a bug?
Note: This seems to be a problem on V11.0.0 and V10.4.1 (and perhaps earlier). Mac OSX 10.11.6, MacBook Pro.
