Cant map "<" or ">" sign to any keyboard button. Always switches to an "A"


so I would like to bind the "<" and ">" sign to my "^" button on my keyboard.
The problem is whenever I want to save it, it instantly switches to an "A".
I tried using different keyboards or different buttons, but it seems to be a specific issue with "<" or ">".

Am I doing anything wrong or is this bug?
Any help is appreciated!
