The switched one works very well but the cnrl-alt-u will still cause a special ASCII (250) character.
This may be a UK/European keyboard driver feature to enable access to odd characters as used in some European spellings. (not UK English)
OK, maybe. The thing is I don't want to change the default behaviours in the IDE, like if a user used the official IDE and then the modded one, everything will be the same (that's why I even uncheck all the new options, like "autoclear", "search in all tabs" etc) so everything matches with the official stuff and step/step guides.
We have to find another keycombination that works for everyone. What is the special ascii char you get? it is useful? maybe it is something in your machine like a custom keyboard distribution?
