Issue resolved for me when I learnt that under Splunk user profile's Preferences > Chose SPL Editor > Enable "Advanced editor". You can also enable "Line numbers" and "Search auto-format"
ok... again as an answer...
Just checked on Firefox, Windows 10, German keyboard:
Ctrl (Strg) + Shift + F
This should work with nearly all keyboard layouts...
Have fun 😉
what happens? In my case 1password owns the
cmd + \ so it moves to
fn + cmd + \ . Try that, or turn on auto-format under user prefs. User > prefs > spl editor, as someone mentioned below.
There are two defects filed about non-English keyboards and the search formatting: SPL-130405 and SPL-135260. In an upcoming release, there will be an enhancement so that you can use Command-shift-f.
Can you get a backslash by typing Ctrl + alt + "º ª \" (the first key to the left of " 1 ! | " )?
