    AVID MC6 German Keyboard Layout

    Hi,

    anyone figured out a way to set German or any other keyboard language layout other than US? I tried new settings etc, but keyboard settings are messed up now. Tried to change OSX language settings. No luck. This has never been an issue before. Going back to 5.5. :(

    Honestly I hate editing.

    Re: AVID MC6 German Keyboard Layout

    This is indeed a problem. Some Keyfunctions are unmappable (don´t know if this is an exiting word Smile)

    Maybe one who knows a little more could chime in here…

    "Glad", I'm not the only one with this issue; Examples:

    F1-Key launches 'Help' (Standard-PC-Key). I recall this issue more than a decade ago.

    'Slip 10frames right' marks Audio-Track3 ... 

     

    Don't they do international beta-testing? Obviosly not!

    yeah - it roars loud, but maybe it should have stayed a little longer in kittens basket. Premature release - INMHO.

    Lift isn´t lift anymore, instead of lifting it now is slipping 1 frame.

    Trim mode opens up the quick transition window...

    Creating new user settings twice, doesn´t help

    ReMapping from the Command Palette won´t do it

    Even the default user setting is messed up.

    and have a look here

    same Problems on the PC side

    Re: AVID MC6 German Keyboard Layout

    Oh boy. I did some more testing and found at least a "sort of" workaround, that does the deal for me. In OSX you can show the input source language as a flag on the menu bar. You can switch it there to the US keyboard and so you can at least assign the tools you need to your keyboard settings. I started from scratch with the settings file in the avid utilities folder called XpressKeyboardSettings. So I can at least cut the way I want in Avid using the US keyboard layout and switch back to German, when I quit Avid. Only downside are systemwide shortcuts like command Z, which becomes command Y for us, etc. etc.

    I know it´s not perfect, but might help to get you cutting.

    André.

    Avid is aware and is working on a fix.  No news about when the fix will be released.

    Re: AVID MC6 German Keyboard Layout

    Hi

    I had the same Issue on Windows 7. I changed the Systems layout, so the keyboard layout Windows is using (probably working on OSX too). It is kind of a workaround in the way of "minus times minus is plus", but at least the key positions are right now.

    Hope it works for you too

    Hi there, same problem with french keyboard, have to switch to english keyboard in language bar to have my mapped key doing the right function. Obviously ctrl+a (sellect all) becomes ctrl+q (quit application) and so on... very annoying
