    Keyboard layout wrong when trying combinations with Shift key


    Hey guys,

    So my brother recently got a new laptop (Acer Aspire V Nitro, 17'') and everything was working fine until yesterday, while he was typing and suddenly couldn't use AltGr+2 to get an @-symbol. We looked into the layout settings, everything fine (It's still set to Swiss German layout). So I tried some keys out to check if that's correct. The layout was correct at first: still qwertz, the ö, ü, and ä all still there as well. BUT as soon as I tried combining Shift and numbers, we got a lot of weird results. Instead of +, ", *, ç, %, &, /, (, ), = for Shift+1-0, we got completely different symbols. When trying with AltGr, similar things happened. Normally we'd get ¦ @ # ° § ¬ | ¢ for AltGr+1-8, but it changed it to a lot of other, weird symbols.

    Eventually we found out that AltGr+q gets us the @-symbol. Oddly enough, though, the -symbol, which is, on the Swiss keyboard layout, AltGr+e, still works fine.

    I have the feeling that the layout for Shift and AltGr combinations is for some reason the one of another layout, maybe the German one, I don't know. I think this might a software problem, and it's weird because 2 days ago, the @ combination worked just fine. Or my brother might've accidentally hit some random key combination while gaming that triggers this - but it's very weird that this is even possible.

    Has anyone ever experienced or heard of this problem, and is there a fix that we can do manually?

    Thanks *Smile

    :)

  2. Use of a french canadian layout Wedge bluetooth keyboard with iOS8, is it possible?

    Hello,

    I have bought a Wedge bluetooth keyboard with a french canadian layout. In this layout, differently from all other french layouts, accents are made with only one key and necessitate the strike of a letter before the accentuated letter appears. In Windows
    7, in language et keyboard settings, this layout is called "Français (Canada)". To be precise this also a layout where you have to hit "Alt-car+2" to have the "@" sign.

    You can see the keyboard and it's layout here: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CM0cbAcWoAAxw9h.jpg:large

    When I connect this Wedge keyboard to an iPad on iOS8, it appears and works when I hit keys but doesn't seem to have the right layout in memory because when I hit the "`" (accent) key, it types directly è instead of waiting for me to type another letter
    as this layout would require. Also, all the symbols that can be accessed with a "shift+(number)" stroke are wrong and don't give the result there supposed to. When I go in keyboard settings of the iPad, it says I use a "Français canadien (CSA)" layout on the
    keyboard. Other french layouts offered in the iPad are AZERTY layouts which are definitly wrong as the keyboard is a QWERTY.

    My question: is it possible to have use the french canadian wedge keyboard with an iPad and have the key write exactly what they show (i.e. the "shift+3" combination gives "/" just like the keyboard displays on the key and not "#" as I get on the screen
    of the iPad when I use the keyboard) ?

    EDIT: I understand that special functions like PLAY or the WINDOWS key won't work as I am not using the keyboard with a Windows environnement but a keyboard that types something else than what the keys show as typing combinations is useless. If it is not
    possible to use as I would be able to type on a computer (without the functions, understandably), I will return the keyboard.

    Keyboard layout wrong when trying combinations with Shift key

    Click on the search icon on the taskbar. Type Language (or the Swiss equivalent, if you don't have English Windows) and select Language (Control Panel) (or the Swiss equivalent). Next to the Swiss language click on Options. See if you have the correct input method. If not, click add and select the correct. Then click on the other and remove it. Also in Languages see if you have any other unwanted language installed and remove it.
