In an IDE I use key combinations like Shiftshift (Esc).

I'm now using a MacBook Pro with a Touch Bar. It seems this is not working anymore, as the IDE only reports Esc being pressed.

Has anyone else experienced this?

PS: I've heard about the workaround of mapping caps lock to Esc, but I'd like to use that as a last resort.


Try hitting fnshiftEsc, that triggers the Shift+Esc for me. If you press the left shift key with your left thumb, it is a very similar gesture.
