It is not enough that InDesign users whom are on a MacBook (Apple laptops generally) are facing issue when assigning keyboard shortcut for their Styles unless they use an external extended keyboard, but apparently even with such keyboard we have to switch our OSX language to English to be able to assign and use Styles shortcut which is not practical, hence not a shortcut any more.
Before I report it to Adobe as a bug, I wanted to see if others can replicate the problem on their Mac OS, or perhaps know a way around this limitation.
Note. InDesign CS6 and prior versions works fine, it is only with InDesign CC 2017 (haven't tested it on earlier CC versions)
Mac OSX 10.11.6 & 10.12.5
It might be a small issue for some of us, but those InDesign users producing newspapers daily with short deadlines uses shortcuts for nearly every thing, that was the power of Quark before as well as InDesign.
I reported this issue to Adobe as a bug since apparently no one responded with a solution so far.
