Broken: version: 2.93.0, branch: master, commit date: 2021-06-02 11:21, hash: rB84da05a8b806
Worked: 2.82

This was a bug that came up way back in the pre-2.8 era that I reported and was fixed, but it seems that it's back again :-/

In any field that accepts string inputs, press the shift key while typing an entry made up of multiple words separated by spaces with the purpose of writing in capital letters. You'll see that while shift is pressed, the space bar doesn't function. This worked in all 2.8 and 2.9 Blender versions except in 2.93

And also, pressing shift to slow down an interactively transformed object doesn't behave as previously. In fact, the transformation doesn't slow down at all! Transform an object using the move manipulator and try to slow it down by pressing shift. It doesn't respond! So in essence, there's something going on with the shift key press in 2.93

Have you been able to replicate the issue?

This is quite rad :( I believe that one of the key features in Blender's workflow is the ability slow-down any interface interaction with the shift key, and it's stopped working, let alone the spacebar issue. And still no reply?

Try with factory setting and make sure you don't have any custom keymap or addons enabled.
I had to reassign shift to Precision Mode in Transform Modal Map because i use custom keymap in 2.93.0 LTS.

Also pressing Shift after Ctrl doesnt work any more. Shift must be pressed before any other key modifier in order to use Precision Mode with Snap.
