The Norwegian keyboard also has this "third class" mania...
Some priorities are very strange, for example the so
important @ as AltGr-2, while the ¤ (generic currency?) being
at Shift-4. I never use the latter, anyone know what it's
used for? :-)

Now, with an iso-8859-15 font, you have the Euro there,
so it might become somewhat useful. Unless your OS is
smart, and you still get the currency symbol there.
Personnaly, I've never used it, and it's a third class
symbol on French keyboards, so it doesn't matter.

Commenting on the GTK behavior instead, though, I never was
impressed with this "auto-reassignment" feature...

I've known it for a long time, but never came to use it,
mostly due to the fact that I don't use many GTK+ applications,
and for those I use, the default shortcuts are ok.

This changed with Dia, and I was delighted to be able to
assign simple, one-key shortcuts for tools I was using a
lot. B for box, T for text, L for line. I've used them a
lot in the diagrams I've drawn so far.


So while it's nice to be able to "re-bind" the keys, I think
the user should really tell when this is supposed to happen.

I completely agree. This behaviour is unexpected, and it
seems to be "destructive". Is there a way to cancel the
shortcut assignment you just made?

But if I understand correctly, this is more a GTK+ problem
than a Dia problem?
