I can not type \ inside of the Workspace for Treehouse on my Macbook Pro, Japanese Keyboard.

See Above. I can type it outside using \ Alt+¥ but not in the Workspace.

I have the same Problem. I am using Internet Explorer to enter Workspace. The first time I fixed it by using the Desktop Keyboard from there on it worked over the Keyboard aswell, but now this trick is not working anymore.

Thanks in Advance

Kris

I recommend you change your keyboard language to English.

Have you tried using other browsers to use the Workspace in? You could try using a virtual machine. You can find some pretty smart 12-year-olds on YouTube who have usually figured everything out before you :)

I have this problem too! I use a Swedish keyboard and it works just fine everywhere else (like here in the comments \\\).
