Pipe symbol does not work anymore in IntelliJ terminal


After upgrade to the newest IntelliJ version (2021.2) the keyboard shortcut for the pipe sign produces no pipe sign but copies the next following character six times. When I search for a shortcut definition, I can enter the pipe sign in the preferences > keymap window. And then no shortcut is shown.

Maybe it has nothing to do with the problem: I could not update from 2021.1 to 2021.2. I had to newly install 2021.2.

It is a known problem - https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-274574 .

The fix will be available in the next IDE version.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
