Characters that require ALT key sometime not displayed correctly





I'm using Citrix Workspace on macOS Monterey with a "Swiss German" keyboard to connect to a Windows 10 session and I have issues with characters that require the ALT key.


For example, on a "Swiss German" keyboard for typing the "}" character you need to press ALT+9.

The problem is that often (not always) a wrong character is displayed.


For example, if I type many times the ALT+9 combination this is what I get:


As you can see most of the time the correct character "}" is displayed, but sometime the wrong character "$" is displayed.


Another example, in order to type the "|" character I need to type ALT+7.

If I type this many times I get:


Sometime the correct "|" character is displayed, but sometime the wrong "7" character is displayed.


This problem has been around since I started using Citrix Workspace years ago and it has never been fixed.


Is this a known issue?

Is there anything I can do in order to fix it?


My current configuration:

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016) with macOS Monterey 12.1.

Workspace (2201) connected to a remote Windows 10 PC.


Thank you

I'd love to, but unfortunately it looks like it don't have permissions to do so.

When I try to go to the Citrix support ticket page I receive the following message:
