Bug Report Mac: enter @
On Mac you can't enter the @ sign (I'm using a Mac keyboard). That's in the editor (for example when entering an email for the server login information) or with TextLines in your own app.

Edit: That's with XCode 5.0.2 on OSX Mavericks.

Shift + 2 is not @ on a standard Apple keyboard. It's on Alt + L.

RE: Bug Report Mac: enter @
I use Apple wireless keyboard and @ is exactly Shift-2 on my keyboard.
I wonder what kind of keyboard do you use ?

googling for Apple Keyboard - everywhere I see there's @ on 2

anyways, I'm using system call for accessing pressed key character, so the issue is not on the engine side.
Code:
if(NSString *characters=[theEvent characters])

RE: Bug Report Mac: enter @
On the german Apple keyboard it is not there. Just like the @ is not the same on the german pc keyboard.

The error is the same on a wireless apple keyboard and on the integrated one in a MacBook (german layout too).

RE: Bug Report Mac: enter @
Esenthel probably initializes the English layout on the keyboard. It is indeed true that on German keyboards, you have to press alt + L to get the @ sign (I work for AppleCare).

MrPi, if you do press shift-2, do you get your @ sign? Then we can test the issue and check if it is just a configurations issue, or something actually is wrong.
