Re: Trouble With Right Alt+Arrow Keys

Will check google when I have some time.
Well I looked at the Keyboard manager and I don't see a way to do this. What about a script that says something like: alt gr = alt?

AltGr (also Alt Graph, or Right Alt is a modifier key
found on some computer keyboards and is primarily used to type
characters that are unusual for the locale of the keyboard layout,
such as currency symbols and accented letters. On a typical,
IBM-compatible PC keyboard, the AltGr key, when present, takes the place
of the right-hand Alt key.

ALT GR is for entering characters for other languages.

It didn't come with any software. Just the keyboard. However, I talked
to Troy at Unicomp a few minutes ago, and he did tell me about Alt GR,
which I'm still a bit confused about. What's Alt GR?

Still the same layout as the Ultra Classic with regard to the keys under
discussion. This one is a real throwback design wise (and that's not a
criticism). Really tall keys, nice rake, an actual 6-pack above the
arrow keys - quite nice.

It is still very odd that they did not use reflected symmetry for the
repeated keys that surround the space bar, but so long as you know where
they are, these should work as they do on any other keyboard. That is,
unless they have a custom keyboard driver associated with this model, in
which case you'd have to make certain that's been installed.
