Hello everybody,

am new to programming, new to eclipse, ... not new on reading and writing, though... Wink
installed kepler on a mac osx 10.9 and the scala plugin.
Coding so far would work in general (lots of other questions, of course....) But one of the most pressing things is: I can't by any means (except from copying it from the clipboard) enter an "(" parenthesis, since there are (have been... I unbound them, however, this did not change anything)... since there are shortcuts with shift-8. Shortcut shit-9 works fine (is the ")" closing parenthesis.
Any idea how to solve this? I'm not willing to change the keyboard layout for this reason (use the german layout). I tried to unhook the shortcuts with shift-8, however this did not take effect in so far that I still cannot enter any "(".
Anybody with any idea? Would appreciate this very much! Thanks
by the way: I can enter everything in any other program.

Hello Thomas,

try this one: Shift + Strg + 8

This prints: () on the screen.

I can't get them alone.
But in most cases you need both together...
