Shortcuts on german keyboard

October 22, 2019 at 6:32am (Edited 2 years ago)
On the Swiss (German) keyboard, you create the "[" character by using option + 5. Bring backward is therefore always option+command+5, which works as "move backward". Bring forward would be option+command+6 which on the german keyboard jumps the element not forward but straight to the front.
These two shortcuts behave differently. option+cmd+[ -> move backward option+cmd+] -> move to front
How do other swiss/germans handle those bracket shortcut issues?

Thx a lot - was trying to avoid that - but let's do it then.
