Hi! I select the whole buffer with C-x h but when I want to indent it I type C-M-\ (which on my Swedish keyboard is Ctrl-Alt-Alt Gr-+ ) but nothing happens. Instead I have to use M-x indent-region. Is this a windows problem or an emacs problem that it cannot detect alt and alt gr at the same time? M-x version yields: GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2007-02-20 on MINDCOOLER

That key sequence is a frustrating one. Today I can type the SEQUENCE

   Alt AltGr RCtrl +

and that works for me (or LWin/RWin AltGr RCtrl + with the patched version of Emacs+EmacsW32).

I use StickyKeys so I type them one by one. The important thing is using the Right Control (RCtrl) and the order of AltGr RCtrl.

Just two months ago the order was the reverse, ie RCtrl AltGr. I do not know what is going on. See also
