CMD + backslash on MAC AZERTY keyboard

Hi all,

Do you know a different sequence to reorder the search fields than *CMD + \ * that would work on AZERTY keyboard ?

Explanation :
The search fields reorder command on Windows is CTRL + \ ** , whereas on Mac, it's *CMD + \ * on a QWERTY keyboard.
On AZERTY keyboard (French), the backslash is not available naturally. You have to use the sequence
*SHIFT + ALT + : * , as / is obtained with a **SHIFT + :

It seems it's impossible to get a full sequence of SHIFT + ALT + CMD + : to get the same behavior on a AZERTY keyboard as a *CMD + \ * on a QWERTY.

On my Windows QWERTZ keyboard (also no backslash directly available) I can use Ctrl+^, so do give CMD+^ a try.

In my case, this doesn't seem to work on all windows machines... and possibly not on all 6.5.x maintenance versions. Do try around, and ask your colleagues to properly document all the options.

Thx Martin. It does not work.
As a workaround so far I added the english-american keyboard to my settings, and switch to it when I want to show the effect of *CMD + \ *. Then I use the *CMD + ` * as this is where the *\ * key is supposed to be on the QWERTY keyboard. But this is not a nice solution.
