4.7: console key isn't being saved
The console key you can configure in Project Settings / Input, at the bottom of this tab, is currently transient. Any changes made to it takes effect only while the editor remains open; when you restart the editor, the Console Keys property is reset to its default.
This is a problem for me because I cannot figure out which is the default console key. It looks like an asterisk, but pressing Numpad *, 8, or shift+8 doesn't opens the console. Also the button below ESC doesn't works, it might be an issue with international keyboards (mine is Brazilian ABNT2). The button below ESC (apostrophe for me, ') opens the Gameplay Debug Tool.
I tried several symbol keys (', Num *, = ), and also a non symbol key (9), in none of the cases the console key was saved.
Hey again Ixiguis,
It had not previously occurred to me that you were attempting to set the console key-binding within the 'Project Settings.'
Try going into the 'Editor Preferences' and within the 'Keyboardy Shortcuts' section mapping the key to the console window. Use the image below as reference on how to do this.

You can map any key on your keyboard to this function. Let me know if this resolves your issue or if you need further assistance.
