*learns something new*While you're typing, to get an é, you type alt e and you'll get a highlighted ´ then just type the e and it will slot in under the ´ like so é.
To get a ê, it's alt i followed by the letter you want to accent. For a ç, it's just alt c, and for an è, it's alt `followed by the letter you want to accent.
I've just done that on a British layout - it should work fine on yours.
How do you get the two dots over the "o" for German words?
It's still an umlaut so you hit alt u and then an o - like so öthe ü is under the u because it is a german "umlaut"
No idea... I remember that one since the ^hat of the circumflex reminds me of the dot of an i.and lord knows why the circonflexe (î) is under the i :-/
Running out of vowels?and lord knows why the circonflexe (î) is under the i :-/
In MS Word (on a Mac) it works like this: for an acute accent, type OPTION e, then type letter you want the accent to appear over, i.e., for an a with an acute accent, type OPTION e a; for a cedilla, just type OPTION c and the cedilla appears beneath it (no need to type the 'c' again); for a character with a grave accent, type OPTION grave (upper left key, top row) followed by letter you want the accent over. Be sure to release the OPTION key before typing the second letter.I can see the accent keys, but I cannot get them to work right. Is there any way to type French accents without changing the keyboard layout to French?
