I'm new to MacOS and need to work on Google Doc, I often use the 'Clear Formatting' KeyBoard Shortcut which is ALT+SPACE on Windows. But ⌘+SPACE doesn't work on Google Doc and an alternative seems to be ⌘+\. But an antislash isn't directly accessible on my keyboard, I need to do : OPTION+SHIFT+/.

My keyboard looks like this one (not sure if Belgian or French): enter image description here

  • In the other comment you made, you tried command + option + / and that didn't clear the text formatting?

  • If you've tried many things, then the keyboard shortcut is probably not supported with your keyboard format. If you'd like, this could be migrated to Ask Different. Maybe someone there would have a solution. I haven't been able to find anything on Google that is helpful for an AZERTY layout.

    Instead of worrying about the shortcut at the moment, have you identified the keyboard combo to produce a backslash? According to one thing I found, a \ is made with option + shift + /. The next step would be to try and combine option + shift + command + / to see if that does anything.

  • of course I tried these kind of obvious things. Well I'm assuming it's not possible
