Dont' know if it is a bug or feature, but the danish characters æ and ø are not in the usual place,

the usual arrangement is: a s d f g h j k l æ ø

cheers, MBantz

I hadn't even noticed that. But since the arrival of the "Scandinavian keyboard" bastard for PCs I have to focus on which key to press anyways :P

Bug remains in, the "out of beta" release.

There is no reasonable reason that I can think of why Æ and Ø are swapped?

I've re-tagged with 'bug', as this is surprising to new Danish Jolla users.

Bug still present in

And in

Regarding the 'why', I know Swedish keyboards have a s d f g h j k l ö ä, so I guess Finnish ones do too, and then they probably just changed a few letters on that, instead of checking how it really should look :).

I'd have hoped that since Finnish is also a small language, this sort of annoying localization issues would get fixed quickly, but alas... shamelessly trying to speak to some sisu pride
