Bluetooth keyboard language issue

I bought a brand new bluetooth keyboard with scandinavian layout. All my settings and languages on the playbook are Danish.

 

But the Playbook insists on seeing the keyboard as a US keyboard

 

How does one fix this? Its really annoying.

Re: Bluetooth keyboard language issue

Not sure how this works exactly, but try editing the Bluetooth settings on the keyboard. Maybe when you paired the keyboard with your Playbook, Options - > Bluetooth - > (Select device)

Hi, regarding this issue, I installed and tested OS version 2.1.x Beta on the Playbook.

Re: Bluetooth keyboard language issue

Is there a way to know a mapping of the US keyboard? I have an Apple Bluetooth keyboard with Spanish Latin America layout but working as US when paired with PlayBook.

 

Given the fact that US layout is the only one available when using PlayBook it would really help knowing what special keys should I use to obtain accented characters. Otherwise, the good feature (ability to use an external keyboard) is useless.
