I have a MacBook with a French AZERTY keyboard. On this keyboard, the forward slash ('/') is over the ':' character, so I have to do: Shift + : to get the /.
However in Eclipse there is a useful shortcut to comment out blocks of code: you do ⌘ + / to put "//" at the beginning of every line of selected code; and Shift + ⌘ + / to put /* and */ at the beginning and the end of selected lines, thus commenting out the block of code.
But as I already need to press Shift to get the /, when I do Shift + ⌘ + :, it understands ⌘ + /, and I get the first shortcut.
I can't seem to get the second shortcut. I even tried Shift + Shift + ⌘ + :, using both Shift keys on my keyboard, and of course it didn't work.
I worked around that by changing Eclipse shortcuts, but I was curious to know if there is a way to achieve that (reaching Shift + /).
I hope you clearly understand this is a matter of the highest importance...
