    Since upgrading to Yosemite, I noticed that the £ sign has been switched with # sign on the keyboard. Has anyone noticed it? I have looked in the keyboard input source in System Pref but the British keyboard is installed so I don't understand what the problem is.

    Can anyone help?

    Mine had switched (I hadn't noticed until I read this)

    For me, the keyboard type in Input Sources had been set to US - I changed this to British and the £ and # are back the right way round again

    As above, mine was switched to US keyboard by the upgrade. Change it back in preferences.

    This was the first thing I did - changed the Input Source in Sys Pref but it wouldn't revert to £ so after a bit of experimentation, I had to check the "Show Input Menu in Menu Bar" and the US keyboard showed up there. So I then changed it to the British one from the menu bar and now it is working as it should.

    Thanks for your replies!

    I see that our attempt to convert you to the dollar have failed once more.
