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)
