[OT] french mac keyboard


    May 15 2008 | 4:56 pm
    hi
    I suddenly felt stupid - having a new Mac Intel (macBook pro) since a few weeks, i am "porting" my old patches on it (which used to run on my PPC)
    apart from a few objects not ported from max 4.5 to 4.6 all is fine
    but in some of my patches i used to use the ENTER key (not RETURN), whose ASCII code is 3
    and suddenly I realise that it is not there anymore! - that is on the french keyboard of the 17" Macbook pro
    !!!!!!!!!
    anybody knows how i could produce the ASCII 3, so it is recognised by the [key] object, or rather where is ENTER gone (of course i could select any other key, and then using [select] transform anything into 3, but it's more about the physical Enter key....)
    many thanks

      Hi Kasper. Did you try the "right-return-key" on your macbook pro ? (the one between right-apple-key and left-arrow-key) On my macbook pro with german keyboard, it outputs ascii 3... HTH

      It's working here (4.6.3, and 5.0.2) with a french keyboard too.

      on all the power books I had (1400, 3400, a G3 wall street, Titanium G4 and an aluBook) I had, on the right of the space bar a command key and next was ENTER
      on the new Intel (2x2.5) no more enter, it's a (second) option key (which produces no ascii since it is a modifier)
      from the pictures i could see on the apple web, it's the same now even on US keyboards.......
      ok, in the meantime i found that using the "fn"-Return combination produces ENTER
      best
