Unable to write square or curly brackets in IntelliJ IDEA CE while using Croatian keymap...

Answered

Hello,

I'm using IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition 13.0.2, and my keymap is Croatian. In order to write square or curly brackets with this keymap I need to use Alt Gr + F and G (square) or B and N (curly) key combination. But when I press i.e Alt Gr + F to open square brackets I get following message: "Cannot perform refactoring. Caret should be positioned at the name of local variable or expression to be refactored".

Obviously, this is a problem for me since I can't write even a simple "Hello world!" java application.

I did find this: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-55043#tab=Linked%20Issues
As you can see, it's marked as fixed, but it doesn't look like it is (or does that just apply to Ultimate Edition?).

My question is: is there a resolution to this problem (without affecting anny functionality)?

Best regards,
Zoran

Hello Zoran,

Please try adding actionSystem.force.alt.gr=true to bin/idea.properties and restart the IDE. Does it help?

Had the same problem with Pycharm 2019.1 and German Keymap. Typing square & curly brackets via AltGr+7,8,9,0 in the editor/console just had no effect. This fixed it, thanks a lot!
