    Hi, I'm using Parallels Desktop 18 on macOS 12.6 using MacBook M1. I installed latest Ubuntu LTS and I have this problem described in the title -- I press [Shift] + [`] for tilde and > (right angle bracket) is rendered; same for only a backtick [`] -- < (left angle bracket) is displayed. The problem happens no matter which keyboard layout I use. I'm desperate -- those buttons are essential for me as a programmer. Any help appreciated!

    I'm seeing the same behaviour on MacBook M1. I tried Ubuntu 20.04, 22.04, Arch Linux, and on all of them tilde key produces angle brackets.
    I've been using Parallels since 17 (or maybe even 16), currently on 18. It happened on macOS 12 as well as on latest 13.5.1.
    I use Polish keyboard layout on both host and in guest. Judging by OP's name, PawelM4, I suspect it's also Polish layout there.
    What I found so far is that when I switch layout to "USA" on macOS then tilde key works fine in the guest, which is (slightly annoying) workaround.
