Problem Description + Screenshots

Shortcuts are messed up, for the following reasons, at least:

  1. Pressing CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+6 adds a Character Group, instead of Backstory (Italian keyboard layout, if it can be of any help)

  2. How am I supposed to use any numeric shortcut above 9?

For point 1, here’s my guess… The app goes by “symbol” and not by number. In fact, SHIFT+7 gets a & on an american keyboard, but gets / on Italian keyboard. Furthermore, SHIFT+6 gets a & on Italian keyboard, triggering the “character group” option instead of the “backstory” one, because it’s bound to & symbol instead to a number.

As an additional proof, pressing CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+ì finally triggers the Backstory shortcut, because SHIFT+ì gives ^ on IT layout and the same symbol is obtained with SHIFT+6 on US layout.

Looking into the external library that we use, it looks like you are probably correct and that there is an issue due to using a non-us keyboard, and unfortunately we haven’t had any to test with.
I have created a ticket for our developers to look into this.
