I use international keyboards which have ` (~ with shift) next to Z key. I'm used to having `/~ key next to 1 (currently, this key produces § or ± with shift, which I don't use at all). My goal is to remap §/± key to `/~.

I have found several key remapping tools for Mac OS, so I want to ask which one do you have best experience with. (I use Mac OS X 10.6)

great question... I've been looking for a tool that will allow me to emulate TouchCursor for Windows on the mac for a long time. Tried Ukelele, DoubleCommand, and some others that I can't remember right now :) KeyRemap4Macbook seemed to be closest to what I needed, but I could never get around to configuring it how I wanted it. Your mileage may vary.

Check out this page that gives some of the aforementioned programs and start playing :)

  • Neither Ukelele nor KeyRemap4Macbook seem able to do this, but they are both great programs for the other tasks involved in having weird keyboards. Commented Sep 26, 2010 at 22:31
  • Thanks. I use KeyRemap4Macbook for mapping paragraph sign to `/~ and so far it works great for me. No crashes :-) Commented Sep 27, 2010 at 19:18
  • @Peter: glad it worked for you! I need to spend some more time with it because I need to extend it in order to have it do what I want :) Commented Sep 27, 2010 at 19:48
