Shift key goes solo

Since up­dat­ing to Sierra 10.12.6, the Q

ß key on my Ap­ple wire­less key­board mis­be­haves with other mod­i­fier keys in Adobe apps. For ex­am­ple, hold­ing åßand while try­ing to draw a square from the cen­tre out in Pho­to­shop, be­haves as if only one key is be­ing held, not both. This ap­plies to both my key­boards, wire­less or ca­bled. What’s wrong? by Sean Crozier If the rest of the up­date went fine, A and you have no other glitches, this prob­a­bly re­sults from a driver or other ex­ten­sion, and has been re­ported with Wa­com graph­ics tablets.

A good test would be to dis­able third-party ex­ten­sions by boot­ing your Mac us­ing Safe Mode (press the Power but­ton then hold ß un­til the Ap­ple logo ap­pears), but that may make it im­pos­si­ble to use those apps too. If you can use them in Safe mode, test to see if this still oc­curs. If the bug dis­ap­pears, look at re­cently-in­stalled driv­ers, such as Wa­com’s.

If nec­es­sary, down­load ear­lier and later ver­sions of the driver, and see whether ei­ther makes any dif­fer­ence. You may find that the pre­vi­ous ver­sion does the trick.
