First of all, I'm putting this in gossip because I didn't know if I could put this in engine.

So my problem is that I can't input certain characters in the text editors that are in Godot (Script tab, writing Shaders, etc.). The characters that don't work are <, >, {, } and maybe more I haven't tested it. I can still write the characters in another text editor and copy paste them in Godot, but I can't directly type them. It's kinda annoying and it takes way more time to do it like this. I am using the latest version of Godot.

- Godotv2.1.3-stablewin64
- Windows 10 Pro
- System language : French (Canada) (even though everything is diplayed in english)
- Keyboard layout : Canadian multilingual standard

Thanks in advance,

P.S.: Sorry if I have a bad English, it's not my mother tongue.

Which kind of keyboard are you using?

I use a QWERTY keyboard

Operating system, keyboard and system language and version of Godot?

I edited my post. I put the information you asked in it. Let me know if you need more information.

Ok! I kixed the problem! I just had to switch my keyboard layout to English (US). I think that it's because Godot doesn't support characters that need CRTL+ALT to be written (with the Canadian multilingual standard layout, you have to press CTRL+ALT to write down <, >, { and }). Thanks for helping me!
