How can we improve the Desktop app?

Unable to use Alt-Gr keyboard keys (QWERTZ keyboard)

On QWERTZ keyboard with Alt-Gr keys, characters that use that key cannot be entered into the terminal (most notably ~\}@)
Inputting does nothing except for ~ which triggers a zoom.

This does work on other Electron apps -- please help.

Keep up the great work!

    Same problem here. However, weirdly it does not happen on all of my 3 systems, just on one.

    app isn't practicable when you cannot use special keys

    I can confirm that I'm having this issue as well, it's very frustrating having to type the special characters (@~^`\) somewhere else and pasting it, especially if I'm in a hurry and want to send commands fast

    On a Portuguese keyboard, I cannot type the } (AltGr+0) and € (AltGr+E) characters. This app has plenty of issues on Windows, but the fact that I cannot type } is the only thing that is preventing me from purchasing it. Please fix asap.

    Same story on croatian keyboard - I can not find way how to get pipe and backslash (AltGr+Q, AltGr+W)
    On iPad Termius is miles ahead of competition, but unusable for me on Win10. Pitty.
