I have been using open office for many years now and have just run into a problem and it is bugging me. I have an Acer Aspire 7735Z laptop, I am using now, with windows vista and all updates. When I use open office word processor I am good for a while then a " marks change alternate ' ( Accent sign which seem to print on this page). If I use shifted 2 I get " not the @ sign. A shifted 6 gives me a ?. The keyboard on the computer has these symbols and more in a green color to be used for French I assume. In Thunderbird Email and and website mail like this I have no such problem. Question: Why only in this computer, this operating system ( Vista) and open office so far? At this time I am in touch with Acer to try to correct this problem. Has anyone else had this problem? Any Ideas? Added info Alt Car key does not work here.
- You're not going to get many views with your question here. I only noticed during routine maintenance on another part of the Wiki. You should ask your question on the OOoForum or User mailing list.
- From your description, it sounds like your keyboard map is getting mixed up, changing from what I assume is a US English layout to a European language layout. I've never used Vista, but I would assume there is a locale setting somewhere?
- Take this to the forum or mailing lits and hopefully someone there who uses Windows will be able to sort this out for you. --ccornell 06:36, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
