If you are using a Non-QWERTY keyboard layout some of the Z's keyboard outputs will be swapped by Windows; since they are always in the QWERTY format.

The way to workaround this is to look at the position the key you want to output occupies on your keyboard, then assign the key that has this same position on the QWERTY layout. Windows will perform its conversion on the output and you should end up with the key you wanted.

For example if you were using the a QWERTZ (German) layout and wanted to output a "^" you would need to assign "` OR ~" from the symbols category instead.

In text string out put Alt+0 = ^, at least for me but I couldn't produce zirkumflex from any of the symbol keys without and with any combination with shift- and alt-keys.

If you want to output just the symbol as a key stroke it seems it's not available at the time in the symbols menu for keys.

What abouit this one? I really need THIS key to be recognized somehow (have been using it for years in gaming):Unbenannt.png

 

Temporary workaround is using "," which is the other key linked to "<" in the dropdown and rebinding "<" to be also "," using an Autohotkey script:

 

CODE (should work on all German layout keyboards, but the Scancodes might differ on some special keyboards):

~SC056::SC033

You obviously could take anyother key as well, you would jsut to know the scancode. In case anyone need help with this, PM me or reply here 😉
