    I just started my new MacBook Pro, I been using Mac for around six years now, why I say that is this is really strange

    When I press "ALT + 2" I get the "TM" symbol instead of "@", which gets really enjoying, I'm using Swedish keyboard and on my old MacBook which is on 10.5 works perfectly fine with getting "@" with "ALT + 2" and I have also tried all different keyboard combinations

    when I use Canadian keyboard, my @ works, but now I can't make " instead, how can I kill the TM?

    I found out that I need to press "ALT + *" to get "@", but... how can I change this? it's really annoying having a complete different key combination, how can I change it?

    Is there a reason you don't want to use the standard shortcut Shift + 2 to get "@"?

    Alt + 2 is standard for non-English keyboard (Czech at least, Swedish too probably )

    Hi, so this is much simpler than one might think - there are sever versions of a language in the system preferences, keyboard input menu. Choose Swedish for instance, but make sure you choose Swedish PRO (then it ends up in the right place).

    Peace

    Thanks so much Andrk! I had the same issue, which drove me crazy for three days, looking for the cause. So you provided the solution! But the question still remains about the cause.. Why did this suddenly happen? I have been using the Macbook for more than a year.. What can change these settings, if the user doesn't?
