Some shortcuts not working on non-us keyboards

  1. Describe the bug/issue you’re running into?
    Shortcuts partially do not work with non-US keyboard, e.g. Pressing “/” to start cursor chat doesn’t do anything on a German Mac keyboard ("/" is not left to the left shift key but secondary function of the “7” key, so you need to press Shift + 7 to Enter a “/”)

  2. Are you able to consistently reproduce it? If so what are the steps?
    Yes.
    Steps: Press Shift + 7 results in nothing.
    Alternatively pressing the key next to the left shift key (where “/” is located on an US keyboard layout) will Zoom out as it is the German “-” key.

Personal sidenote
To fix this it would be really great to be able to customize ANY keyboard shortcut (also for Figma itself. Some shortcuts might work on US keyboard layouts but for others it’s a real pain).

  1. Share a screenshot, recording, console log, link to the file, etc.
    Not possible / necessary

  2. Is the issue only happening in desktop app or a specific browser , or both?
    Browser:
    Brave Browser
    Version 1.22.71 Chromium: 89.0.4389.114 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Desktop not testet yet (if Figmajam is even supported yet on Desktop?)

  1. What OS/version and/or browser/version are you using?
    MacOS 11.0.1
    Brave Browser
    Version 1.22.71 Chromium: 89.0.4389.114 (Official Build) (x86_64)
