MacOs + German keyboard ... short cuts changed?


I think until "recently", the shortcuts for navigation back/forward were command + left/right (maybe with some other modifier). That worked nicely for me.

Thing is: since a few weeks (maybe some MacOs update?), the menu says, the shortcuts are:

- back: command Ö
- forward: command Ä

That sounds weird, but well, it is the same that I now see in Chrome. At least, in chrome, it actually works!

Whereas in IntelliJ, navigation using those keys ... does not work.

Meaning: let's say I navigate through some code. At some point, I want to "go back".
When I press "command Ö", nothing happens. But if I turn to the Navigate menu, and select "Back" there ... IntelliJ goes back.

This is really annoying.

MacOs version is: 13.2.1 (22D68)
I am using a "standard" Apple Magic German keyboard, and I have "German" defined and selected as input source.

The default shortcuts for "Forward" action in Idea for Mac are `Cmd + Opt + →` and  `Cmd + ]`
For "Forward" action, they are `Cmd + Opt + ` and  `Cmd + [`.
`[` and `]` in German are Ü and + in "German - standard".  Please send the screenshot of your Mac input settings, so that I set up the same.
My example:

Maybe I forgot about the option+cmd ... because option+cmd+arrows works for navigating.
So I guess: no problem here, besides the fact that the IntelliJ Navigate menu suggests to use "cmd ö" and "cmd ä"

This is OK if QWERTY "[" is mapped to  "ö" and QWERTY  "]" to "ä" in your particular keyboard layout.
