Norwegian Macbook pro, shortcuts problems

Hi, I see that a lot of the shortcuts don`t work on my keyboard - I`ve tried fcpx to check under commands, but that gives me nada. Hmmm.

Play selection should be /. For me this is shift + 7, but that doesn`t work. when I look up play selection under command and keyboard sign it doesn´t show anything. strange?

Zoom in on timeline should be +, but that doesnt work. Strangely the Zoom out (minus) works well.

Select left [ and select right ] doesnt work either - for me this is option 8 and option 9.

How do I fix this?

I am a Swede with a physical swedish keyboard where our å, ä, ö and some other characters have taken the place of some characters needed for using fcpx or older 7.
FCP is set up for a physical US keyboard. There are some shortcuts but they are too clumsy for editing.

I solved my problem by using a US keyboard. I go to the US every year and get myself a new one to be safe in case?

Maybe this is your problem? A norwegian physical keyboard?

Och, mitt namn ger trevliga samtal när jag är i Norge!

Hei Norrman,
Jag är svensk också. Living in Los Angeles.
I have the same problem while using a non-american keyboard in FCP X.

So without messing around with customizing the keyboard I'm using a U.S keyboard while working in FCP.
I think that (for now) is the best solution.
But would be happy if anyone knows more how to use a scandinavian keyboard for working in FCP. The colorful "skin" would be great.

I guess if you set up commands in FCP by your own - the shortcuts you will find while browsing around in FCP will not correspond to your own set up.

You have to remember by hart your own commands, I guess. . .
Let me know if I am wrong.

Ha det bra,

You can easily customize the shortcuts for your keyboard or use, as I do, a FCP X keyboard cover to get those shortcuts. For example "Play Range" is - (the key next to right Shift) on Swedish keyboard. You can check the shortcuts from a site that sells FCP X covers or keyboards, like KBCovers:
