Thanks - yes mac, it's my dad's computer, I'm his PA :) I've done an update very recently. I'm trying to get a few options to try out next time I am there. If I delete British keyboard and re-add that might work. Or I could try defaulting all the keyboard settings. Been using mac for years... if these don't work just hope it straightens out with the next update.

Lol - he is practically blind and would not have the first clue how to do anything. He asks me to do everything so I can usually only blame myself when something goes wrong. Cheers. I’m going over there later in the week so I’ll have a fiddle.
