Selena Shortcut conflict

For french (at least) keyboards there seem to be some conflicts between shortcuts and "legal" characters.

The one i just encountered is
CtrlAlt0
which is by default bound to Background Tasks but is also how you get the @ character on a french keyboard (AltrGr+0).

So we agree on the fact that it should not be bound to a shortcut for us :)
I had to remove the shortcut to be able to type "@" in an xpath expression, and I guess } is even more used !

Hello Thibaut,

I wonder if it's possible to get a list of keyboard layouts where the AltGr
key is used. We are able to distinguish between left Ctrl+Alt and AltGr,
but this detection has to be enabled for specific keyboard layouts.

do you want the keys we (french) use the alt gr key with ? or the different types of keyboards ? in which case I can't be of any more help

If it is the first case, i'm sad to announce that french keyboard uses AltGr with 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0,°,+,E

Hope this helps.

On a side note, it may not be an easy task to create shortcuts that work the same for every possible keyboard layouts.

There are other keyboard layouts that use AltGr. Polish (programmers) for
example. I am sure there others (Czech?)

Hello Wojciech Halicki - Piszko,

Polish should already be handled correctly. It would be nice to get a complete
list. :)
