How do solve being able to write "}"

I can write the opening brackets but not the closing one

I'm only on problem set 1, but i feel like being able to write closing brackets is pretty important going forward.


  • Oh yeah, it is pretty important. What keyboard layout are you using? On my keyboard it is shift-] (shift of the close-square-bracket key). Nov 3 '16 at 18:45
  • I have a swedish keyboard layout, tried fiddling around with different keyboard languages in the control panel, but no change. The strange thing is that all other symbols work. I can make { with alt + ctrl + 7, [ with alt ctrl + 8, ] with alt + ctrl +9, but when i do alt + ctrl + 0 nothing happens. Nov 4 '16 at 12:33

If you are using windows, you can hold Alt and digit 123 for {, and Alt+125 for }.

  • Thank you! alt+125 works perfectly! Nov 4 '16 at 12:40
