I tired to do the following:

  1. Select the original US Keyboard layout as my current keyboard.
  2. Launched Ukelele
  3. Chose New > From current input source
  4. Swapped a single key
  5. Saved the file in my keyboard layouts and chose it as my input method.

Now when I try to type in Chrome, it doesn't output anything. It works fine in other apps such as TextEdit, though.

  • Have you tried rebooting ?

Try rebooting.

This helped me to globally apply a new keyboard layout - often logging out and back in helps, sometimes you need a reboot.
