Toggle Flag has no working button in LR Classic CC.

In Lightroom Classic CC 7.4 function called Toggle Flag in Library module has no working keyboard button when Finnish keyboard is used as the function is assigned to a key called ` and there's no button for it. Instead we have direct button for ' and ́ (and with that latter button you can get ` only with Shift key pressed down and that combination doesn't work either).

To clarify – yes, you can modify the keyboard shortcut on macOS System Preferences but you can't have a one-key keyboard shortcut for it as macOS System Preferences require you to use at least one modifier key together with the keyboard shortcut. So that's not a proper solution, and this problem hits us with other one-key keyboard shortcuts as well, like 

I've bought Keyboard Tamer from Jeffrey Friedl to workaround many of the problems I've run into because of the insane lack of support from Adobe for it's International customers, but even Keyboard Tamer can't fix this nonsense.

Adobe, you better take a close look at this problem quickly when you repeatedly insist that transformation to only support Creative Cloud Subscription means good for the user, customer support and faster development cycles.

This problem has existed since the beginning of Lightroom. That's since 2007. That's more than 10 years.
