I have AHK running in a virtual machine (windows 10) under VMWare Fusion on my mac, with a Danish keyboard. Hotkeys such as


are working fine (for making typed keys match what's printed on the keyboard).

But any hotkeys containing shift (+) are not. E.g. +!9::}

Try the Send command

+!9:: Send {}}
  • Beautiful! For future reference: This only works with the left alt key. The righthand one seems to be mapped to AltGr. Adding also +<^>!9:: Send {}} solves this. – AdamAL Jun 30 '16 at 11:15
