Support for French/Français (Canada) keyboard shortcuts in MacOS
I have a French "
Français (Canada)" keyboard with a Mac. Trying to type a forwardslash
/ in a text field using the normal keystroke,
option-é, brings up the keyboard shortcut menu instead of typing a forwardslash. The default shortcut for this menu is
option-/ on a US keyboard. Changing the keyboard language in Teams to French "
Français (France)" nominally changes the keyboard shortcut to
command-shift-/ but the actual behavior does not change. Typing
option-é with the keyboard set to French still opens the keyboard shortcut menu, which shows the shortcut as
command-shift-/ despite the actual behavior.
I am unsure of whether this is due to a programming error, or because "
Français (France)" keyboards use an AZERTY layout, while "
Français (Canada)" use a QWERTY layout.
Expected behavior: typing
option-é in a text field sends a
/ as is the default system-wide.
Actual behavior: typing
option-é opens the keyboard shortcuts menu.
Adding Canadian/Canadien for search visibility.

This behaviour is not only limited to Mac keyboards. My users are experiencing it on Win10 machines as well.
I've noticed replies elsewhere from July 2019 claiming that this was on the roadmap. Any ETA for when this will be fixed?
