    At the risk of a huge berating. Where is the # Key on my MBP?

    I have tried looking in the character palette but there are simply hundreds to choose from.

    Please can someone enlighten this dummy.

    Thanks.

    Um. I can't help but ask, how did you type the question if you can't find the key? Also, it's in the same place as on any keyboard...shift 3? #?

    Hm.

    It would also be helpful to know what keyboard layout you use ;)

    It would help if we knew where you were to give an accurate answer, as different keyboard layouts put it in different places.

    In the US and Canada it is Shift - 3.
    In the UK it is Option - 3

    It should be the same, no matter what keyboard, windows or mac, shouldn't it?

    I'm talking about different countries' layouts. You don't even have to push a modifier key to get a # on a German keyboard.

    On my keyboard, it's the '3' key...

    Sorry about pic quality, but you get the idea. I'm not entirely sure about the layouts, as mine has the English/Arabic layout.

    To my knowledge, Shift-3 makes the "Pound Sterling" symbol, whereas option-3 make "#" (the pound sign).

    The # key is to the right of the 0 and below the 9... wait I'm looking at the wrong keypad. :D
