You probably have wrong AmigaOS side keymap. Check keyboard preferences (or setmap/setkeyboard commands)

When everything is setted up correctly, you can use programs as KeyToy (=1.3) & KeyShow (>2.04) to check which key correspond to which character.

I have noticed that some characters are more difficult to input regarding your keymap definition.

i dont know if emulator or not adds win95 s keyboard mapping (i never seen this in my real Amiga i think) using it i can get such charters same way what i get them in windows. and i still Å,Ä,Ö in correct postion. in my real amiga keyboard which recased a1200 keyboard has own keys top of numpad where i can get these []{} charters. in english keyboard these are repalced with (). but all is well now. makes much easier code.

Depends on your computer hardware and how it is set up as well. From you location I'd assume that you have a Windows PC with a Finnish keyboard attached.

If so, open Notepad, Wordpad, or some other text editor and confirm that you can type all the special characters you want in the standard windows text editor first as you need to be able to type them in unicode from windows first!

Then try the WinUAE keyboard mappings with vanilla Amiga configurations before going to customs ones.

Problem is that today keyboard don't have the same key placement as Amiga keyboard . It's a shame .
You can tweak WinUAE & FS-UAE (config file) to map your Amiga FI keyboard to some of your today PC keyboard.
Example : similar issue

The numpad keys giving []{} are configured for these in French keyboard as well.
Under winuae you can normally access them with start/end keys which don't exist in Amiga keyboards.
As a rule of thumb, if you can't find some key, try the ones that seem meaningless.

I remember the struggle on coding C on WinUAE a bit tricky on a Norwegian windows keyboard, I guess that's why they all use ASM up there in the Nordic territories. The []<>| keys that you mentioned

Any way I'm back on a NZ US Keyboard now
