Not sure what's up with this. But my default bind for ctrl-` in Sublime Text 2 doesn't work. I can rebind it to something else, that works, but the app doesn't recognize any bind involving the ` key.

I'm on a late 2011 15" MacBook Pro and running Windows 7 via Bootcamp.

One of the problems appears to be, after logging input, that when I hold the control button, Sublime Text believes that the input that was pressed was \.

If I hold the Fn key, I can actually convince it that yes, it is a backquote. But once I started looking at this, I found all kinds of other weird little issues.

Language is set to United States English, and the keyboard is set to United States (Apple).

Any ideas?

So it turns out that the United States (Apple) keyboard was the culprit. I set standard US keyboard to default and everything works now, and there's no apparent downside. – Charles Randall May 6 '12 at 3:04
