Have you tried the pipe on the key between Shift & Z? (ie Shift )?
Sorry, I sort of touchtype, so not sure the last time I looked down, but my muscle memory uses the lower key and don't think the one next to the 1 key has ever "worked" for me.
Damn... yes, that works perfectly - thanks
Looking down, Alt Gr (the Alt to the right of the space bar) activates the pipe on that key for me. I've just reasoned that by noticing the three marks on the 4 key, and thinking how I create € symbols for EUR currency. If you keep going along the row with that modifier there are cute surprises with superscripted powers and logical 5/10 & 6/8 fractions too.
Great, thanks for the info. I never knew what to use the <Alt Gr> key for before - it also gives me the pipe on that key i was trying yesterday.
