    I'm running DP4 11A494a but that feature which Apple announced of holding down a key to see all available characters (like in iOS), doesn't seem to be working. When I press a key for a long time, nothing happens and after a while it starts repeatedly introducing that letter.

    Any thoughts?

    Mine its working, and I'm using the same build. Try installing DP4 again or way till next update and do a fresh install (Format Partition).

    Hmm, interesting! It didn't work before the latest update either. I'll wait for the next one.

    I wonder if it is because of my type of keyboard? It's a portuguese characters keyboard, so it already allows to input some types of characters which you wouldn't be able with an english keyboard. Nevertheless, I type a lot in German and Latin, so when I heard of this feature I was really excited.

    I believe further updating will solve the issue, as some people are having troubles with Safari's multitouch functions and others aren't.

    Also, a bit off topic, but is versions and auto-save already working in iWork '09? Because for me it works on Text Editor, but it doesn't on Pages.

    I've already reported all this to Apple. Hopefully it will fixed!
