Cannot insert interpunct ("·") character

Bug report

I cannot insert an interpunct character using the alt + shift + f key combination (on a MacBook with french keyboard and french keyboard layout).

I can insert it in other apps like Apple Notes or Firefox which lead me to think that this is specific to Inkdrop. I can also copy paste the character in Inkdrop.

There is nothing in the dev tools console.

  1. Change your macOS keyboard layout to French (I guess, not sure if this is related)
  2. Press alt + shift + f

Hi Clement,

Thank you for the question.
By default, alt + shift + f is mapped to a command editor:go-word-right, as you can see in keybindings settings in Preferences:

You have to overwrite this mapping in keymap.cson like so:

'.CodeMirror textarea':
  'alt-shift-F': 'native!'

Hope it works.
