I was wondering if anybody else seemed to have the same problem? I’ve had both the newest and the previous version, but I cannot get @ to write with Alt-g + q which maps to an @ symbol on the German keyboard. I had Emmet and Script packages installed, but uninstalling didn’t repair the functionality in case I broke it.
Since that really was a show stopper, I took a close look at the app and at the Folder “\Atom\resources\app\keymaps” in there there is a file called “win32.json” – prey! In there the are two lines (93,94 @ the build I use) “ctrl-alt-[": "editor:fold-current-row", "ctrl-alt-]“: “editor:unfold-current-row”, after removing them, just restart and you can now type backslashes.
The @-sign is being blocked by the autoflow/keymaps. Once removing this, autoflow (auto-formatting and removing some linebreaks!?) doesn’t work anymore – but I’ve got my@ back. Secondly since I am fairly old, I still use the old win3.11 short-cuts for cut and paste – There are Shift-Delete and Shift-Insert. Atom binds Shift-delete to a plain delete-command. In the “/resources/app/keymaps/win32.json” you can rebind it to “core:cut” (~ line 30ish) thus enabling this kind of legacy support…
