Mac keyboard shortcuts hash key

ANSI Keyboard layout, ftw. But become familiar with the keyboard viewer. Was the subtitle for this thread "tell me about how wrong my keyboard preferences are"? Looking at a Sony UK keyboard that would be, for example, finding the hash key where the backslash key is on a Mac? If you were doing, say, web developing, you'd want that to be where you fingers would expect to find it every time you specified a colour.

And the tilde needed, of course, on any Unix or Unix-like system for indicating one's home directory. Your fingers would be going to the key where the hash plus "shift" There are a handful of others, importantly including, I guess, the "at" sign which you'd want for email addresses. Sorry for the syntax and the typos -- time I shut down my computer and did something else, I think.

Sorry, I sympathize with you.

I need keys to just be where they should. In the US this is not a problem, but in Europe, dang Well, not to be a jerkface about it, but you are talking about an American company trying to make a laptop that will sell to people of many different languages. The UK is obviously a huge market, but it sounds like even there, there's not as strong a standard as in the US.

Or am I wrong? I'd think that if there were a bog-standard UK layout, that's what you'd get when you selected English UK as input language. You are wrong.

There is such a layout, but it is not what you get when you buy a Mac with a UK keyboard, nor what you get when you set a Mac to use a UK keymap. That is, in fact, the entire cause of my frustration. I was ignorant to what a BS keyboard looked like so I had to wikipedia it. Well it seems to me the differences are somewhat trivial, esp if you consider that relearning 4 keys is easier and may be more sensible than loading a "bog standard" keyboard layout drafted more than 10 years ago which will result in mislabeled key caps. Do Mac keybds in UK come with the extra key, btw? Can we help you with anything else?

Mislabelled keycaps don't bother me at all, because I don't look at 'em. For many years I had my keycaps randomized; I'd taken them off to clean the keyboard, and just put them back arbitrarily. As long as f and j are correctly placed, I can orient myself on the keyboard and don't need to look at it. OTOH, the wrong character appearing when I press a key is immensely disruptive. I thought you always typed out your cursings in full? Huh, that's strange. I had always assumed you'd get the real UK layout if you switched the input type, but I tried it and you don't.

Strange and stupid. There's no real excuse for it. I also thought that if you bought one in the UK you'd get a UK keyboard. Apparently not. Also, the UK keyboard has one more key, I believe.

    The solution is to choose the British or Australian layout. This way the Mac ignores what's on the keys and outputs what should be on the keys. As far as I can tell, the Australian and US layouts are identical. Is there any difference at all? Maybe it's because I've used a Mac all my life but having the symbol above ' annoys the hell out of me when I go onto Windows.
