My IMac won't let me type an ESS. I can type upper cae but not lower.

I've tried a different keyboard and different word proceSSorS.

Hello again, It might be worthwhile pushing your Mac's OS up to 10.6.8 with the Combo update

Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1

Mac Specs: Too many to list. Typically use an Intel iMac for most of my stuff and a Mini for web video.

About the only thing that I can think of (in other words, guess at) is to check your keyboard mapping. This is done differently in the different OS versions. Things to look at would be:

1. Language & Text
2. Universal Access
3. The keyboard

The way your keyboard is responding sounds almost like it thinks it's supposed to be responding to a multi-byte character set - that would make sense if it was several keys but just one key? I know in Lion the keyboard can be remapped to a completely different set (for example QWERTY for the U.S., AZERTY for France) etc.

An SMC reset **might** clear it up and set everything back to their defaults, but personally I've never heard of such a problem before. It HAS to be set that way somehow otherwise it wouldn't do it on an external keyboard as well.

Are there pranksters in your environment???
