    Hey,

    I've recently stepped over from Windows to Mac and I haven't yet found the [ and ] shortcuts.
    Are there?

    If not, how to get them, I really need it :(

    They're to the right of the P key, just like a regular keyboard. At least they are on my mac, and on every picture of a Macbook Pro keyboard I can find on the web. Are you using a non-English layout?

    [ = Alt+5
    ] = Alt+6
    { = Alt+8
    } = Alt+9

    With me:
    { = Alt+5
    ¶ = Alt+6
    ¡ = Alt+8
    Ç = Alt+9

    And whatever ALT I try, there's nothing that shows what I need :(

    I'm trying Ukelele as the tutorial is for OSX Snow Leopard

    Nope, Ukelele isn't really something useful for me :(

    I also don't see an updated tutorial for OSX Lion :(

    I guess there won't be much changes between these two versions.

    If anyone would want to know, on an Azerty keyboard [ and ] can be typed by:
    • For "[": SHIFT+CTRL+5
    • For "]": SHIFT+CTRL+°
