yeh alt+3 = #iVersa said:Yes I was talking about this in the office yesterday, its odd how the UK apple keyboards dont actually show the # symbol on the 3 key.
I guess because americans know we dont use # to symbolise a number like they do, they assume we dont use it at all, haha.
Yeah, it just does nothing everytime I press it. The three works, and the £ works, but not the hash. Whether I am using the keyboard or aluminium keyboardDoes that mean OPTION/ALT+3 does not work on your supposedly UK keyboard layout?
It works for me on Mac OS X 10.6.4.
Open the Keyboard Viewer (see earlier posts in this thread for instructions).Just tried again now, still nothing. I tested the keyboard in US and the has key works fine. I then changed it back to UK and realised that none of the ALT/Option + number combos work at all
Hi,Open the Keyboard Viewer (see earlier posts in this thread for instructions).
With Keyboard Viewer showing, press your Shift key. Does the corresponding key in Keyboard Viewer hilite? Do the characters on the on-screen keyboard change?
Release the Shift key and press the Command key. Does it hilite?
Release the Command key and press the Alt/Option key. Does it hilite?
Change the keyboard layout to US. Press the Alt/Option key. Does it hilite?
If the answer to any of these is "No", then you may have a defective keyboard.
However, it could also be some software you've installed that's interfering with the Alt/Option key. Reboot in Safe Mode.
