to whom it may concern, I have a problem with MATLAB live scripts.
i'm using MARLAB R2019b and when i press alt or alt gr keys, it shows me shortcuts to the toolbar options. I want to disable them because i need to use alt key for writing chars like @ or [ ]. On my keybord these chars need alt+another key to be written.
in the screenshot below I show the shortcuts.

Thank you Rik for replying vety quickly. In my case shortcuts are showed up either when I only press alt gr key or when I press alt gr + char key at the same time

You can disable the toolbox mnemonics by executing the following command.
com.mathworks.desktop.mnemonics.MnemonicsManagers.get.disable
The command can be added to your startup.m file if you want to execute the above command automatically every time you open Matlab.
If the startup.m file is not already existing, follow the procedure mentioned below to create a new one. (Refer section Startup Options in MATLAB Startup File)

Hello Ajay, thanks a lot from me too!
Although I cannot believe that you need a hack to get a workaround for a simple problem like this.
On the same note: Why is it that I cannot set preferencesfor the live editor at all?
