I found the pipe key on the HHKB pro 2 UK ISO layout
« on: Sun, 09 December 2018, 16:01:54 »
I just found the pipe key on the UK layout HHKB pro 2 when I was looking for solutions online. I happend to try the left shift + right alt key and pressed the hashtag(#)  key, it gave me the pipe key.


 I can't however, believe how impossible it was to find!
 The pipe key, even if not frequently used, is essential since all keys on a KEYBOARD, a board for all keys, should have every key accessible. I am trying to program in java and it is essential for logical OR statements.

Oh snap! Congratulations! I'm glad you got it working, but that combo is annoying

Serves you right for not using ANSI layout :p
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Use Switch Hitter to see what key codes are being sent. What keyboard layout are you using on your computer?
