Description Urmas 2014-08-14 15:03:27 UTC
[This is a Windows platform bug]
If a non-US default keyboard layout is selected, only alphanumeric shortcut keys work. OEM keys (to the right from P,L,M) work only if they generate characters which also present in the US layout.
Comment 1 Buovjaga 2014-11-12 10:15:50 UTC
What are some examples of characters that are not present in the US layout? I have this layout (Finnish): http://www.goodtyping.com/teclatFINok.png
In Tools - Customize - Keyboard I can't select shorcuts like Ctrl-Ö or something.
Comment 2 Urmas 2014-11-12 10:37:21 UTC
Shortcuts with ;'[]\/,. are affected.
Comment 3 Buovjaga 2014-11-12 10:45:47 UTC
Ok, I tried with Ctrl-' and Ctrl-. with a Finnish layout and I could not reproduce.

Win 7 64-bit and Version:

Comment 4 Urmas 2014-11-12 11:58:59 UTC
So Ctrl+Ä has the Ctrl-' for you?
Also, is Finnish the _default_ layout?
Comment 5 Buovjaga 2014-11-12 12:09:41 UTC
Yes, Finnish defaults for everything in Languages (except UI in 4.4, but I tested with Finnish UI in 4.3). Ctrl-Ä is not available in the shortcuts list. The character ' is to the right of Ä as is shown in the layout picture I linked in comment 1.
Comment 6 Urmas 2014-11-12 12:34:16 UTC
Exactly. That is confirmation. The Ctrl+' should work like Ctrl+B, and be triggered by ['] key, not [\] one. The latter is triggered by [B] even if it is missing from the default layout.

Urmas: is this report a duplicate of bug 82117 in your opinion?
