    Hi,
    In windows I used the button '@' for the overlay, but when I try to set the mac steam on @ it shows the shortcut as "none" and I can't use it ingame.

    Anyone has an idea how to make it show @ as the button ?

    Thanks !

    @ isn't a key – you have to hit the shift-key to make that character.

    Just tried it out myself – if you press either 2 alone, or shift-2, both of those work. No idea why I can use those keys and you can't.

    For me it is a key :p here it's next to the 1 (left of it), when I hit shift+the @ key I get an #
    Also, I have an azerty keyboard, and shift+2 gives me a 2 and the button with the 2 on without pressing shift gives me é :p
    My keyboard looks like this:

    No, you don't have a @ key either. ;) But Steam should still show the characters you pressed. Perhaps since it's a non-standard keyboard (maybe not where you live, but I've never seen any AZERTY keyboards in the US) Steam doesn't have support for it.

    What do you mean "you don't have a @ key either". It's a key, with an "@" on it, isn't it an @-key then ? xD

    And that sucks :/ Ahh well, it's on ctrl+tab now, and that's just as good :D
