Short description of error
The $-key is not recognized by Blender for Swiss variants of French, Italian and German keyboards.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Add keyboard layout French (Switzerland), Italian (Switzerland) or German (Switzerland) to windows.
  2. Open the windows On-Screen keyboard.
  3. Type $ in a textbox or add it as a keybinding. (The $-key is right beside Enter)

Note: The Swiss keyboard variants have more common with each other than their primary languages. The only difference between the three is that the primary/secondary keys for öäü/éàè are swapped.

D5465 is a fix for windows. I think I had the same problem on Linux previously, but I will have to take another look at that.

On Linux the problem is different, and most likely not one limited to Swiss keyboard variants. When utf8 is enabled there are multiple keys that can be used in textboxes but not as keybinding.
