Can't type Square Brackets in Foundry Text Editing Fields on German Keyboard Layout
 
I am playing STO on English, but my keyboard layout is still German. To get a square bracket, I normally need to use ALT GR + 8 or ALT GR + 9. (ALT GR is an ALT key between the space and right control button or the right windows key. I think - if any key at all, on US keyboards that would be just another ALT key.)

Well, I can't seem type [ ] and similar keys that require ALT-GR to work.

I have the same issue and the same setup as Mustrum.

My workaround so far was copying a [Rank] tag to the clipboard and pasted it into the text boxes when I needed it. Another workaround would be to change the keyboard layout to English (US)... but that's not a very good option ;)

Like Mustrum, this is not only affecting the " [ ] ", but also every other combination where you have to use ALT Gr or STRG + ALT like {, }, \, , , |, ~, @, and .

All other keys in the german keyboard layout are working just fine.
