Making an Open/Close Brace on a Mac Keyboard

Many of Apple's premium range of computers based on the Mac OS do not have any key for making an open/close brace. Generally on the keyboard, this open/close brace, also called the Left Curly Brace and the Right Curly Brace, is present. This brace which is denoted by { } is absent on a Mac keyboard. This absence of the character may cause inconvenience for its users. This can, however, be dealt with - the open/close brace can be entered through a combination of keyboard keys on a Mac.

There is no key for open or closed braces (also known as brackets) { } on certain Mac keyboards. However, it is possible to enter these characters using the following combinations:
  • For { use the following combination: [Alt] + [(]
  • For } use the following combination: [Alt] + [)]
