Summary0003497: incorrect string entry keybindings
Descriptioninterface.txt (0.31.16 distribution for OSX, likely others) contains the lines:


where it should read:


Resulting behavior is that typing a left brace or vertical bar in a text entry field produces nothing. Typing a question mark brings up help, and inserts a vertical bar. Disregarding the rather confusing (I would say erroneous) behavior that a single keystroke is interpreted to invoke two separate actions, it should insert a question mark, but the STRING_A124 binding apparently overrides the STRING_A063 binding. After the suggested changes, left brace and vertical bar keys insert the appropriate characters into the text field, while question mark brings up help and inserts a question mark.
Steps To ReproduceUse the affected characters { | ? in a text field, such as setting a custom nickname on the embark screen.
TagsNo tags attached.

As of 0.40.01 release, upper 128 characters have been rebound. Many have, like 124, been bound to the question mark key. Typing a question mark in a text entry still brings up help, but inserts character 159 (small script f) instead of a vertical bar. None of these should be bound to question mark.

The original issue here was fixed in 0.40.01 (assuming I understood your comment above), and the second was fixed in 0006558.
I opened a separate issue for the incorrect STRING_A123 keybinding.
