Alt+Insert shortcut not working with Fn key in Android Studio (and maybe elsewhere)
I have a TypeMatrix keyboard with quite a few keys requiring pressing the
Fn key first.
Insert is one of them. So if I want to use a shortcut like
Insert, I usually just need to type
Insert. But it does not work in Android Studio1 2, where I had to add a custom mapping. It appears that
Alt is recognized as
Alt Gr, which explains why the default shortcut was not triggered.
To add a custom mapping in Android Studio, go to File > Settings. In the popup window, click Keymap on the left and type generate in the search field. This will display the current mapping associated with the
Generate... command. Double click on it to display the Edit Shortcuts menu and then choose Add Keyboard Shortcut to finally enter your custom shortcut.
