You mean €?
Sorry Harm, but CTRL+ALT+5 does not work (on my azerty keyboard)
for a € I use the ALT GR+E
the moment I use CTRL, the textfield changes from inputting text to selecting the border of the textfield
and CTRL+ALT+5 gives no result (nor any other number)
I use CS5 english version
what do you do with a querty to type €?
Try ALT + 0128
You must use the Numeric keypad to type it.
You might want to check the Accessories -> System Tools -> Character Map for more details. It should give you the key MAPPING for your particular kind of keyboard.
CTRL+ALT+5 works for US International keyboards. Apparently not for other keyboards.
