OS X V10.7 Lion :: Press Symbols On Keys The Symbols Appear Differently?

Jul 4, 2012

When I press sysmbols on keys the symbols appear differently and not how it is printed on the keypad, please advise where I can go to change the settings.  I have given you examples below so my question is clearer.Shift 4 gives $ instead of Euro sign, actually I would prefer the £ sign which is shift 3 @ appears when pressing shift 2 and not the sign which has this displayed

OS X :: Reassigning Alt (Option) Keys For Typing Symbols

Jan 7, 2011

On my old windows PC, in word I used to be able to type symbols just as if I was typing letters. Not randomly, I custom assigned each symbol I used a lot to each letter. I type a lot of symbols in my scientific notes. If I clicked control shift: ABD where alpha beta delta, 1-9 was subscript 1-9 (for chemical formulas), and I had a load more. I used the so often I could touch type them just like any other letter.

I want to do the same thing on my mac, so I can type the symbols. I have noticed that the alt key does bring up the symbols, but they are very strange and not very useful. I dont need to type a "grave" symbol very often, but alpha all the time (but there is no alpha). And they aren't assigned to my logical letter (beta to B). How do I reassign the alt keys to my symbol, surely there is an easy way, but I have looked and not found one.

Intel Mac :: USB Keyboard: Letter Keys Typing Symbols Delete Key Not Working?

May 5, 2012

My two-year-old daughter was messing with the keyboard on my iMac, and now the keys on the keyboard are not functioning as they were before. The delete key doesn't work, "a" types a symbol-topped "a" followed by the copyright symbol, etc... 

I've restores the factory settings to the function keys in system preferences, but the problem persists.

MacBook Pro :: Scandinavian Keyboard - No Symbols

May 13, 2010

I just got my first MBP , 15inch AG, on Tuesday. Nice enough machine, getting used to the idiosyncrasies of OS X (like the useless Finder), but fair enough. There is one complete mess up on Apple�s part though: There are no | [ ] { } symbols on the keyboard. I have to use Google to find out how to type on a keyboard that's frigging in front of me! Ok, there's no PgDn and Home keys either, which is annoying (was the shortcut Fn + Arrow, Ctrl + Arrow, alt + Arrow or cmd + Arrow ?!? - I though Macs were supposed to be easy to use) I really wish Apple would fix this - until then I guess I@ll have Letraset it. and the @ and ' are swapped compared to most laptops

MacBook Pro :: Won't Type / Keyboard Changes To Symbols

Jul 26, 2010

When I try to type my password and hit enter/return I get an alert sound then nothing. Nothing about wrong password. Even more rare all of a sudden all I can type are symbols so I'm assuming this is what happens when I try to type my password to wake from sleep. I have to do a hard reboot before I can type in my password. I've re-installed Snow Leopard and updates. Tried deleting some preferences.

It's still happening. Anybody got any ideas? I've searching for similar problems. Can't even find a command that changes the entire keyboard layout to symbols only. I'm running 10.6.4 on a Macbook Pro.

OS X :: Assign Keyboard Shortcuts To Symbols In Pages 09

Jan 2, 2010

I'm trying to do some math/biology study notes for school in pages, but I can't seem to figure out how to assign keyboard shortcuts to symbols. I could easily do it MS Office 08, where I would assign such keystrokes as Alt + Right for the "⇒" symbol but in pages it's not that simple. Right now, I essentially have to goto edit/special characters and insert each symbol in manually when I need it (Which is obviously time consuming for no reason)

Software :: Won't Find Ordinal Number Symbols

Sep 18, 2008

I am aghast at the plethora of special characters available in OS X. However, I cannot seem to locate the ordinal number symbols. I would like to find a single character that would make a cardinal number be an ordinal number. For example, 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc. I would like them, obviously, to be superscript and small but not lilliputian. I would like these characters to be compatible with the Address Book and also with my iPhone. I tried typing it out in Microsoft Word but when I cut and pasted into address book it lost the superscript quality.

IMac :: G5 Terminal Display - Red Symbols Overlay Desktop?

Jun 5, 2010

I think my 20" G5 iMac ( the model before the integrated iSight) may have what amounts to a terminal graphic card problem. It was working perfectly until suddenly an odd red pattern made up of what looks oddly like thousands of tiny i-ching symbols overlayed over the actual desktop. I have tried rebooting from the CD which suggests it isn't a software issue, and since I understand the graphics card is part of the logic board, it's probably not worth replacing it financially.

Intel Mac :: Keyboard Suddenly Flips To Symbols Intermittently?

Jun 22, 2012

my keyboard has suddenly started to flip to some kind of symbols font intermittently - I've tried another keyboard, and the same thing happens. (I'm typing this on another computer)  I've tried opening various system preferences, and choosing default settings wherever possible. Sometimes it flips back and forth rapidly between the weird symbols and english... almost like there's a short circuit or something. My Wacom tablet works fine...
