' and / require pressing SHIFT+#, SHIFT+7 respectively on a German keyboard
layout. Do not know about other keyboard layouts. I think this would be an
argument to let the user choose between several keys to relate to typeahead,
that do not cause any problems with other functions.

I suggest - and # or + on a German keyboard for example.

Maybe one could implement a drop down menu with key settings for different
keyboard layout to keep the prefs clean.

SHIFT+7 for the / does not work in my build whereas SHIFT+# works fine. The
former does not work when choosing from the menu too.

I'm having the same problem. When attempting to type in a text field, the button
assigned to ' (on an English keyboard it's the dash key to the right of 0)
brings up the Find bar at the bottom of the screen. This is with a Spanish
(International Sort) keyboard layout on Windows Server 2003 64-bit in the
lastest nightly branch build.
