Description Danol 2014-03-29 10:11:58 UTC
Hey there,
in my country ( czech ), we write some symbols (like {}, [], &, @, etc. ) using ctrl + alt + letter, eventually altgr + letter. Unfortunately, although I am pretty used to ctrl + alt variant, it is not working in xamarin, only the altgr one. Could you fix  that, please?

Have seen this one https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=16314 - it says it should be fixed, but in my Xamarin 4.2.3, it is still not working.

We have checked (with Czech keyboard as input method) for symbol {} with ctrl + alt+ 7/0 and observing same behavior.  It works fine if ctrl + altgr + 7/0 is used.

Environment Info:
XS 4.2.6(build 60)

AltGr+G or Ctrl+Alt+G
AltGr+F or Ctrl+Alt+F
AltGr+N or Ctrl+Alt+N
