Shortcut collision on German keyboard

Recommended Posts

Note: The following issue applies specifically to a German ISO keyboard layout (and maybe only the German version of Publisher).

In Publisher, the key command for “select next” is ⌥ ⌘ ] and for “select previous” it’s ⌥ ⌘ [
For “move one forward” (or whatever the phrase may be in English) it’s ⌘ ] and “move one backward” it’s ⌘ [
Now here’s the catch: on a German keyboard, [ is typed as ⌥ 5 and ] is ⌥ 6.
So, in order to type ⌥ ⌘ ] I’d have to type ⌥ ⌘ ⌥ 6 which obviously can’t work.

Effectively, the “select next/previous” shortcuts work, the “move one forward/backward” shortcuts don’t.
