Can't enter minus sign into anywhere in the game

I need to enter negative numbers, like "-1000" when trading for towns in Hota Multiplayer. However nothing on my keyboard produces minus sign in the game. I have keybad with a key for minus but it creates a +. It works everywhere else except in heroes 3 (hota and complete).

I tried switching keyboard layout in windows to Eng (US) that works for other people but it didnt change anything.

How to type negative numbers in heroes 3?

Hmm, interresting. Did you try pressing the "+" key, as for me it produces the minus?
Finally, if that doens't work, you can always copy paste the minus key from elsewhere.

I think the guy got his question answered on Discord already:

there are some keyboard layouts that don't work properly with HotA
but the US one is definitely one that does work

copy-paste is not allowed in the gold transfer view of Hota but changing keyboard to US (not just language) fixed it.

Yeah, you have to click all the keys until you find which one produces the minus sign.
