Hi! I am trying to use insert the \ symbol when typing in Obsidian but ¥ shows up every time I press the key. This is only happening in obsidian and not in any other programme or browser. It also wasn’t happening before and I can’t figure out what I did that changed it.
I’d appreciate any help with this. Thanks!
Are you using mac, win or Linux ?
In addition to what Jopp asked, what are your OS language settings and keyboard layout?
I’m using a windows laptop.
The language is Eng (UK), and the keyboard layout is Eng (US-Intl)
Does this happen in all apps or only Obsidian?
Sometimes on Japanese Windows
¥, but that seems unrelated here(?). If you switch your OS language to Eng-US does anything change?
Not sure if this is related to the
IntlYen key parsing in the layout shown below.
"IntlYen" located between the
Backspace keys. Labelled
¥ (yen) on a Japanese keyboard.
\/ on a Russian keyboard. (From UI Events KeyboardEvent code Values)
May you check your locale for Obsidian in the dev tools (calling by
ctrl + shift + i), and type these line in the console:
So I’ve figured it out. Apparently, it was the font I was using. Choosing Yu Gothic turned any and all backslashes in notes, even existing, into ¥. So I’ll just keep using ¥ as a \ cuz it does the same thing and changing the font changes it back.
