Description

Example:

On Windows 10, let have a webviewer that points to a site that needs an input (i.e. an email address). Using the Italian keyboard, it is impossible to enter the @ character.

 

To enter these characters, like @, €, #, [, ], {, }, etc.) you use a combination of two keys (Alt-Gr + key).

In the webviewer under Windows 10, nothing happened.

I tested many browsers (IE, Edge, Chrome, FF) without any problem to enter all characters.

On MacOS X, with the same kind Italian keyboard and the same combination typing (Alt-GR  + key) , everything works OK.

 

How to replicate

create a webviewer, set it to Google search, try to enter the listed characters

 

Workaround (very irritating):

Open a textEdit program, insert the character you need, copy it and paste into the webviewer.
