Okay, New to this forum so If I've stuck this in the wrong place, sorry. Been using Gedcom Census and Family Historian on the Windows 7 system via parallels. When I first installed the system I found that the keyboard worked fine on both mac and windows. I used Alt+3 to do # on both systems and it worked fine. With me so far? Except today Alt+3 has stopped working. All I get is something that goes bong! After a lot of poking around the keyboard I found that I can get # by pressing the \ key. That's fine... but now how do I get \?! What I don't understand is why it has suddenly changed from working like a mac keyboard (i.e. alt+3 for # and the slashes in their rightful place) to ... well not working! Could really do with some help on this. Fairly quickly. And no, I'm not Michael Schumacher!!
