Aha! Found an old post I made which is almost exactly the same as this: https://teamtreehouse.com/community/hi-why-cant-i-use-altgr-in-the-console-it-is-making-writing-into-the-shell-really-hard

The solution is to use Alt+Ctrl instead of AltGr.

Thanks alot man!

No problem mate :)

You should always use an English keyboard when programming.

I am from sweden so i have a nordic layout i asume. But it works fine when writing a script and if programm in c#. Only where it doesnt work is in the console from the workspace

Sadly Workspaces only excepts English keyboards... I'm sorry :(

The only solution I can think of now is to use an English keyboard...
