I'm going to defer to people like @nohillside and @Tom Gewecke for internationalization and keyboard setups, but you can rule out a factory reset of Apple bluetooth devices quite quickly assuming you have a Mac computer you can borrow and pair to the keyboard in question. Enable Bluetooth in the menu bar Hold Shift and Option keys when you click on ...

Check all usb c ports. I had one broken and when I fixed it the problem was solved.

Karabiner should be able to do that for you. If this is a USB device, you might be able to do use Keyboard Maestro too.

I faced the same annoying bug with emoji viewer in macOS Mojave (10.14.6). Possible solution In case of multiple input sources, try to delete one of them (System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Input sources) and add deleted one again. System restart was not required in my case. If you have only one default input source, try to add some another and then ...

Yes, the keyboard lag exists, you're not imagining things … nor are you the first to notice this behaviour. This fluctuating-delay happens because there's a T2 chip in the way, and the keyboard and trackpad are processed by the T2's own BridgeOS first before reaching the rest of the system that macOS can see and have influence over. Oh, and before you ask, ...

Whilst the topcase-and-keyboard is interchangable (within years - you can't put the 2016 guts into a 2018 body), changing the keyboard's nationality layout does not change what the machine knows as its native tongue.

I know this is an old thread, but it was one of the first results I got on Google "Kana" shows a special keyboard with hiragana characters instead of the English letters. The iPad keyboard will show a grid with all the characters. The iPhone keyboard groups them by consonant to have less on-screen keys, and sets a direction for each vowel. You can either ...

Is there any table with a list of unused shortcuts in Mojave that could be good candidates for custom shortcuts? There is not. There are a few utilities out there which will show you which key combinations are in use¹ but none (that I am aware of) show you available keyboard shortcuts. ¹ I believe KeyCue is the most well-known and best supported. One ...

In Mojave 10.14 to disable Ctrl-up arrow and Ctrl-down arrow, go to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> click on Mission Control in left panel. Disable shortcuts that correspond to Ctrl-up arrow and Ctrl-down arrow (Mission Control and Application Windows). Control + Up Arrow and Control + Down Arrow should now work in PyCharm

I don’t know how to disable it completely but I make it go away by switching to another tab and entering text, then switching back. Works consistently with WhatsApp web on iPad for me. Not the answer but hopefully helpful if anyone else is irritated by it :)

The root cause of this issue ended up being related to a corporate MDM that's tied to the device. Luckily this app is approved by corporate. However, to resolve, I needed to uninstall the Gboard app I had downloaded from Apple's App Store. I then needed to re-install the app from my corporate's "App Catalog." After taking these steps the Gboard keyboard ...

My answer is tested in 2019 with iTerm2.

I'm having the same issue and like you I've tried everything from reinstalling to trying different custom keyboards. Only the default keyboard and emoji keyboards work in the google apps like gmail, hangout, meet etc. I can't find a lot of people complaining about the issue online so I figured it might be because this is a company device and some permission ...

You can still type S to get the first file highlighted, and from this step on, use the tab key ⇥ to go through all files that begin with s, if s runs out, it goes to T section,

It will let you use Shift/F4*, assuming you have a service you can apply it to that will launch Terminal, but it won't let you use ctrl/shift without some further character. *Also assuming you have Fkey set to be Fkeys & not 'convenience shortcuts' - set in System Prefs > Keyboard > Keyboard, otherwise you'll have to add Fn.

I have also faced this problem. Although I was using a full 110% keyboard with macro keys build-in.

If you are looking for Modifier remap, in keyboard.prefPane exists a modifier button where you can edit it for external keyboard. For more advanced ways, you should checkout keyboard Maestro for Macro keys and this answer to figure out what you want to do.

According to the help of the command, the content must be valid JSON. But setting the property to null takes no effect.. Instead, I found empty string actually works: hidutil property --set '{ "UserKeyMapping":"" }'

Probably that there's no 'shortcut' assigned to what you are trying. You can verify this when you open your 'keyboard setting' and go to the third tab as in the screenshot. Check in the different lists if you find the non working combination or not, and if you dont, add it to the function you want it to do.

I found Unshaky on GitHub (https://github.com/aahung/Unshaky) I've been testing it for about day and so far it has been working fabulously! During a full workday I experienced a double-keystroke only once. Please note that you have to set it up: I put 40ms delay for each key: I also made an exception for the Tab and Delete keys which I regularly hit ...

If I understand correctly, you are saying the keyboard languages show up properly in all Apps except a few. Is this right? Are you connected to the internet when the problem occurs? I ask because some language items (e.g., voice dictation) only work properly when an internet connection is available (sometimes you can't even see the mic, shown in your image). ...

Catch and remap your keystroke in the browser. Using Google Chrome 75.0.3770.100 64 bit on a MacOS Mojave 10.14.4.

No, your keyboard is almost certainly not faulty. In fact, if you hold down some keys, such as the full stop . or space keys you should see that they repeat just fine. Assuming that’s the case, you have one of two options: keep your Mac as it currently is and use the Keyboard Viewer with your mouse if/when you need to repeat other characters, or totally ...

Using Karabiner Elements, you can add a "Simple Modification" as follows: Basically, you need to know that the name of the § (±) key in Karabiner's configuration screen is non_us_backslash In my case, I used this method specifically for the built-in keyboard, leaving my external keyboards unchanged.

Managed to get this working. For the keyboard/mouse issue, this is related to the Windows support software download from Boot Camp. Boot Camp Assistant > Action > Download Windows Support Software. Mine was around 1GB. Be patient. Don't use direct links you might find from other posts linking you to Apple support downloads. The contents should be copied ...

Didn't realise that keyboard shortcut was asked. Jump right to the last para. You can look at the screenshot in the bottom right corner of the screen. If you think that the SS was taken fine, you can swipe right on it with two fingers(like in Safari) and it will be saved at that moment. You can edit it(or maybe not) by clicking on it and then done and ...

I ran into this shortcut by accident; my own question was the related one to yours: where is this configured, and how can I disable it? Here is the answer to that: In system preferences -> keyboard -> "shortcuts" tab -> "keyboard" list entry -> last item in the list is "Move focus to status menus."

Scrolling can be a keyboard input. For example, using the arrow keys on a keyboard will often scroll the window. While I have no experience with the Scroll Reverser app, a quick check shows the source code is available. And, according to its Read Me file: Scroll Reverser installs an event tap, which gives access to event stream, including scrolling ...

I found out myself and I hope it'll be useful to other people. I don't think this has been done before. You need to use BetterTouchTool to assign your remote input to the local trigger you want to use on the target machine, then go into BTT's preferences and tick the box "Always use the old keyboard implementation" in advanced keyboard settings. Now you ...

At one time it was possible to make the change and in the end it became impossible in the official Apple network. The only solution I could offer you is to buy and replace the keys. I had done it one 2011. ok it's long but I changed the keyboard for 5€... then just change the layout of the language in the keyboard preferences.

Since this is not standard macOS functionality, neither default nor optional, this is either functionality added by you (or someone acting as administrator) or a third-party app. You can check what third-party apps have system-wide access to window manipulation in System Preferences → Security & Privacy → Privacy → Accessibility.

I manage to find a solution from @Tetsujin's comment. Using the keyboard configurator for the WhiteFox keyboard, I created a layer of A, O and '. I then use a fn key together with alt/opt (+ shift for CAPS) to write Æ, Ø and Å.

You can use Text Replacement, built into the system. The issue with needing to generate a single letter in the middle of a word is that the replacer generally wants you to hit a space or a period then a space before it will do the replacement. You also need the trigger to be something you wouldn't ordinarily type. See System Prefs > Keyboard > Text For ...

Though this solution looks weird, but it works: Run your fingers over all the keys. I too faced the same error because some key was stuck, rubbing fingers over all the keys helped me.
