V8i SS4 / Position mapping with french keyboard still not resolved ( 4 years opened ST ) !!

 ST Number : 8001475746 was open 4 years ago and we still cannot use position mapping on french keyboard !!

due to the  bug with the 1 or & key in position mapping:

I can't access any command (on a french keyboard) like 21 (é&) 31 ("&) 41 ('&) and so on..Others are working

Please could you do something or set up real effective keyboard shortcuts ?

This is crucial in term of productivity ( try Sketchup and compare the modeling speed !!)
