Ukelele is a Unicode keyboard layout editor for the XML-format keyboard layout files in OS X (".keylayout" files). It provides a graphical interface to the layout files with support for drag-and-drop character assignments, creation of dead keys, and assignment of multi-character strings.

Ukelele is not able to reassign modifier keys (option, shift, command, control, caps lock), or change the function of special keys (return, arrow keys, function keys, etc). Rather, it is for creating keyboard layouts for different languages or other needs.

What's New

Version 3.0.4:
  • Fixed issues of printing and saving with keyboard layouts not part of a keyboard layout collection
  • Drag-and-drop of modifier combinations now works correctly
  • Creating a new key map as a copy of an existing key map produced an invalid keyboard layout--this has been fixed
  • The remove button for modifier combination sets is enabled appropriately
  • Fixed the symbol for the help key


  • OS X 10.8 or later
