The first Keyboard Input is Ignored and stored for later when renaming Assets causing all Keyboard Inputs to become mixed



To reproduce:

1. Download the attached project "New Unity" and open it in Unity
2. In Project view create a Folder or another Asset
3. Try to change its name

Expected Results: You can easily change Asset name and Unity Editor correctly detects Keyboard Input
Actual Results: First Keyboard Input is Ignored and Stored for later causing Asset renaming to become mixed

- This issue only happens on macOS systems
- For example, if you press the "L" key on Keyboard, it becomes ignored, then if you press another Key like the "Delete", in Unity Editor you can see that the "L" symbol is printed, then you can press for example the "A" key and observe that the "L" symbol is deleted and if you press then Key like the "T" or another key, you can see that the "A" symbol is printed.
- Its sounds like the first Input is ignored and stored for later causing all Keyboard Inputs to become mixed

Reproducible on Unity 2021.2.0b17 and 2022.1.0a13
Not reproducible on Unity 2021.1.27f1, 2021.2.0b16 and 2022.1.0a12

    OK, I had this problem too in 2021.2.f1.
    Here's a workaround that I used:
    Goto Project Settings
    Select Windows, Mac, Linux
    Go to Other Settings
    Untick Auto Graphics API for Mac
    Add OpenGLCore
    Move OpenGLCore above Metal
    Restart Unity

    I hope it works for you too.

    I'm also having a delay when listening for input using the new input system. Press a gamepad button, it doesn't show up in the list. Press another button, and the first one you pushed shows up in the list.

    Absolutely not fixed! It makes really hard to use unity.

    I tested the Apple Silicon version of 2021.2.1f1 on M1 mac and the issue is still NOT fixed. Why is it marked as "fixed" when the issue is still untouched?

    Not fixed in 2021.2.1f1, keyboard is still not usable, selection in asset tree is totally unusable, causing deleting wrong nodes due old selection.

    This def still not fixed. editor updates are still a frame behind. Mouse moment, click, or keystroke are still required to make editor update visually with latest changes.

    This is still an issue today (November 08) on 2021.2.1f1 <Metal>. Also, the whole editor is very sluggish (MacOS Monterey, Intel, 2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5, 16 GB 3733 MHz LPDDR4X).

    Using an Intel iMac. I had to migrate my project back to 2020.1.0f1. As best as I can tell, in addition to being slow, keyboard mappings are incorrect.
