Description

Running QGis 3.4.4, in a Windows 8.1 setup in Spanish, with Spanish es-es keyboard (Qwerty with '[' being alt-gr+'`' and ']' alt-gr+'+'), I can properly type '[' (alt-gr+'`') but nothing happens when I try to type ']' (alt-gr+'+').
This happens in Python Console (quite annoying actually), on Python Console's text editor or when changing a layer's name (right-click on the layer tree view on bottom left of the screen), but it works properly on dialogs shown in independent windows (i.e. open file dialog/save as...).

It also happens with QGIS 3.4 and master (3.5 7f3640d8a1) on Windows 7 64 bit using an Italian keyboard.

This happens in Python Console (quite annoying actually), on Python Console's text editor or when changing a layer's name

and in the "feature attributes pop-up window" (the window that appears after a new feature is created) too.

It seems the problem is that in the main QGIS window the shortcut "Ctrl+Alt++" is assigned to the "Zoom in" tool and that "AltGr" key is emulated by "Ctrl+Alt" key combination (at least on Windows).

So, for keyboards in which "]" = "AltGr++", like Spanish and Italian ones, the "Zoom in" tool is selected instead of typing the "]" character when "AltGr++" key combination is pressed.

You can "set to none" (or to another key combination) the shortcut of the "Zoom in" tool (from Settings | Keyboard Shortcuts...) as a workaround.

Thanks Andrea!

I can confirm that removing 'Zoom In' ('Configuraci├│n'->'Atajos de teclado...->'Acercar zoom' in Spanish version) keyboard shortcut gets the ']' symbol back!
