Changing a keybind


Could someone please be kind enough and explain how to change a keybind. I know that it should be done in keymap.cson, but i don’t know what to write.

What i need is my curly bracket. When i pres on alt-g-n i get the right curly bracket, but when i pres alt-g-b nothing happens so i can’t open a pair of curly brackets.


You might find some information here since you’re asking about AltGr:


Well thats bad… is there any way to keybind those brackets to some other keys, i still need someone to show me how to do it …


The basic information on keybindings in Atom can be found in the Flight Manual here:

The advanced stuff on keybindings can be found here:


Thank you, I’ll see what i can do.
