The # character end a few others characters (at least the tild '~', opening accolade '{' and euro sign '€') can't be entered in the evaluate modify dialog (the Ctrl+F7).

This is on an AZERTY keyboard.

Other AltGr characters can be entered without issue (such as @, closing accolade {, ).
Steps to Reproduce:
Open the dialog with Ctrl+F7 or menu, try typing in # via AltGr + 3 keys, or Ctrl+Alt+3 keys, nothing happens.
Type in the code editor or notepad, then copy-paste into the evaluate/modify dialog.

Can't reproduce on a QWERTY-keyboear (Finnish layout).  E.g. AltGr+3 produces '£' just fine.

Does turning off "Use Ctrl-Alt keys" on the "Tools | Options | Editor Options | Key Mappings" page help at all (at least in the AtlGR-E (euro sign) case)?

There's a separate bug that this setting will not properly disable Ctrl-Alt-2, Ctrl-Alt-3, Ctrl-Alt-4.

Also, is this only a problem in the Evaluate/Modify dialog?  IOW, are you able to use these key sequences in the code editor, or in other dialogs?
