Has anyone else experienced that when running AmigaOS 4.1 inside WinUAE that they can't type the < or > characters? I have a mostly bog-standard American QWERTY keyboard, no special emulation settings for the keyboard, and have "American" set as the keyboard type in the OS. The unshifted , and . work just fine for these keys, it's only when shifting for the angle brackets that results in nothing being typed at all.

    I tried it (with German keyboard and layout) and experience the same problem, just it is not < and > but ; and : but I think this is because of our different keyboard layouts. Try to open the programm KeyShow. You find it in your AmigaOS41 partition in “utilities”. Here the keys are shown correctly and you can use that virtual keyboard to type what you want, although that is not very convenient, of course, and no real solution. – John Archer May 8 at 7:09
