This seems to be due to the way how IDEA handles keyboard events in the
editor. These characters do work in text fields like in the search
dialog. Please feel free to add your votes to SCR #7394.

A temporary workaround is creating a Live Template. I would be extremely
happy if Intellij could provide at least a temporary solution for that
problem (i.e. mapping these characters to other keyboard combinations)
if solving this problem requires bigger architectural changes.

Just a note to all language designers out there in the world: if I ever
need to design a mainstream programming language, the syntax will
contain many ??? and ? -- just to pay back for all the , s
that you put into the common languages. Programming in Objective-C is
the best argument to make somebody switch to an US keyboard layout.

Still I'd like to ask everyone on a national keyboard to help us validate
everything works right way. This especially concerns far eastern languages
cause in-place editing has been implemented what certailnly a major change
we definetly cannot validate by ourselves.

Thanks in advance.
