I have a problem regarding the use of the Alt Gr key in Idiom. Whenever I press this key plus any number to enter a symbol —for example, Alt Gr + 2 in order to type the @ symbol (I have a Spanish keyboard),— instead of entering the symbol, Idiom does something completely different: it jumps from one suggestion to the next in the Auto Search section. I want to reconfigure the command for the key to work as it does elsewhere. I've already tried Tools > Customize > Commands > Keyboard, but the “jump from one suggestion to the next in Auto Search” function is nowhere to be found, so I can't change it. Does anybody know if there's a way to do it?
