There seem to be two layouts for Swedish (not counting Sami) and I don't understand the difference.

    If you want to find an answer, you could turn on the keyboard viewer and inspect the keyboards - paying attention to the alternate keys when option, command, shift and control are depressed. You might need to take a screen capture to compare them side by side depending on "photographic" your memory works.

    In case this is not clear - you turn on the Keyboard & Character viewer (from the Keyboard pref) so that it will show as an input source in the preference pane you have uploaded in your question.

As far as I can tell the only difference is that @ and ™ has switched places on the two layouts.

Swedish vs Swedish Pro keyboard layouts on Mac OS Screenshots from MacOS High Sierra (10.13.4)


On Macintosh computers, the Swedish and Swedish Pro keyboards differ as regards the characters available using the ⇧ Shift or ⌥ Option keys. ⇧ Shift+§ (on the upper row) produces the ° sign, and ⇧ Shift+4 produces the € sign. The digit keys produce ©@£$∞§|[]≈ with ⌥ Option and ¡”¥¢‰¶{}≠ with ⌥ Option+⇧ Shift.


With "Swedish" the @ sign wasn't available on alt-2, so I had to switch to "Swedish Pro" to get back the "old" behavior.
