Some shortcuts didn't work in Illustrator 26.0-26.0.1 while using Czech (and maybe other) keyboard
After upgrading to AI 26.0 (and still not fixed in 26.0.1) some shortcuts stopped working, like those:
- Show/hide layers = cmd + ;
- Lock selection = cmd + 2
It seems that all shortcuts with czech letters on the keyboard instead of US are affected. To be clear:
- On us keyboard there is ";" key, but on the Czech keyboard, there is "ů" letter.
- The same for the letter "2" on US, on the Czech keyboard, there is "ě" letter.
Possible fix: to keep logic as before, when everything worked, you have to work with hardware codes of keys instead of language translated.
I can confirm, that now to show/hide guides I have to push three keys: cmd + option + ; to activate the shortcut, so it's definitively affected by locale translation of the current keyboard map. Please, fix it and keep shortcuts work the same as for the last 20 years :)
I literally cant work.

Have a Nordic Keyboard, so I change the keyboard shortcut to Ctrl Ö / shift Ctrl Ö and Ctrl Ä /Shift Ctrl Ä
This work fine

Hotkey for "Layer completely backwards" didn't work.
I try maping new hotkey, but can be same problem with latin (Czech keyboard).
I can maping it, but did work.
Illustrator ver 25 on Windows.
The bring to front/forward, send to back/backward keyboard shortcuts are not working in this version.
