Can’t type danish character ‘Å’ in Chrome on MacOS

Posted on

Problem :

On my macbook I can type danish characters using the classic:

  1. option ‘ = æ
  2. option o = ø
  3. option a = å
  4. option shift ‘ = Æ
  5. option shift o = Ø
  6. option shift a = Å

All six works in pages, Firefox and iTerm.
Only the first five works just fine in chrome.
So my problem is that I can’t type ‘Å’ in chrome.
My language settings is US and the keyboard is also US.

Solution :

The Dark Reader extension have a keyboard shortcut by default that maps option+shift+A

You can see and manage keyboard shortcuts in Chrome extensions here: chrome://extensions/shortcuts

Just change the shortcut or delete it.
