[OS X TeX] TeXShop 1.35 - localized shortcuts

it seems that there is problem with localized versions.
I'm running a german TeXShop and found no way to press the right keys for commenting lines.

The menu tells me: "Format" -> "Kommentar Apple-]"
This works on a US keyboard. But on my german keyboard I couldn't find any keys that fit.

Is this an already know topic? Does anybody knows what to do?

Thanks nevertheless very much to Dick (et al.) for another brilliant TeXShop!


P.S. Thank you for supporting pdfsync for ConTeXt!
