Mentions function doesn't work when keyboard language is other than english

Describe the bug

The mentions function only works when the keyboard language is set to english. I’ve tested with the german and french keyboard configuration, and it doesn’t work.

To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

    1. Go to System Preferences - Keyboard - Input Sources
    1. Add a new input source other than english, and activate that input source
    1. Type @ in Anytype

Expected behavior

When @ is typed in Anytype, it should trigger the mentions function, no matter what keyboard language is set.


  • OS: Mac OS
  • Device: Macbook Pro
  • Version: 0.18.28

I don’t think this is an issue with Anytype; different keyboard layouts have different symbols in place of @. for, e.g. using an Albanian layout, the number key 2 will print inverted commas. In the french layout @ is typed using the key 0.

@div3xi What I mean is it doesn’t work when you type @, no matter which keys do you need to press to do that

oh my bad let me try again.
It is working for me

@Kite Thank you for your notice! It has been added to the bug tracker

@div3xi It’s the real bug!


@Kirill_Lem My apologies. :sweat_smile:

This bug is solved for me, maybe could be marked as solved if no one else has the same problem
