I just bought the tab S5e and keyboard at Costco in Canada for a really good deal. Really happy with the tablet but the keyboard is not configured properly. You type an apostrophe and get <. Type a question mark and you get ~. What is wrong with it? I called Samsung and  they said to take it back but the replacement works the same. Am I missing some secret setting? I called Samsung again and got told they are waiting for an update to fix it. That sounds pretty sad for a brand new much advertised tablet & keyboard. Maybe someone has a solution because I've looked everywhere online and found nothing. *** Read Malechai's post. problem solved!!!

glad to have helped. this is what my other comment said fyi

if you want the keyboard keys to match what is typed on screen, change your input language for hardware keyboard to French (Canada). go into settings, general management, language and input, physical keyboard, Samsung Keyboard, then pick French (Canada) from the list. now all the printed keys match what appears on screen.

Tap the Lang button. You are using the wrong software keyboard.
