Norwegian characters for keybindings


#1

Hey.
I’m having issues binding Norwegian characters like æøå. This is an issue for all packages.
So I was wandering if I’m the only one experiencing this, any suggestions on how to fix it?

Thanks.

I suspect you’re running into the issue described here:


#3

Maybe, but it has nothing to do with the alt key. Binding just “ø” to move right in vim-mode doesn’t work.
Issue I posted: https://github.com/atom/vim-mode/issues/359


#4

Thanks for posting the issue and linking it back here. I hope that it is something simple and that it isn’t due to the underlying Chromium issue of not handling international keyboards well.


#5

This is still not working in atom 0.136.0. Any chance of this being fixed any time soon?


#6

Have you opened the Keybinding Resolver to see what Atom thinks you’re typing when you type ø?


#7

It thinks I click this one:
’`’: ‘vim-mode:move-to-mark-literal’

Maybe it got something to do with multibyte characters and the encoding of the config file?


#8

The encoding of the file shouldn’t have anything to do with what keys the Keybinding Resolver sees because it is looking at the key that is pressed. You should open a bug on Atom Core if you want more attention on this, but I suspect it is a duplicate of one of the already open international character bugs.
