Key down for ALL keyboard buttons

Hey guys, currently there is only functionality to press and hold down functional buttons such as ENTER, LEFT_CONTROL, ALT, F1-F9 but no option to press and hold down buttons such as “A” “B” “C” “D” “1” “2” “3” “4” etc. Basically the alphanumeric keys and punctuation keys. There is only an option to “type text” which does not fulfill a user requirement we have for one of our use cases. It would be great if there was an option to press and hold down any character on a keyboard, not just the functional keyboard buttons.

I believe in selenium there is an action chain that can facilitate this with the “key_down” function as I have it written in my python test like this (as an example):

actions = ActionChains(driver)
actions.key_down(Keys.LEFT_CONTROL).key_down(Keys.LEFT_ALT).key_down(‘p’).perform()

Would be nice to have this same functionality on TestProject :).
