If you don't know this already, apparently there's a feature in Lion where pressing a certain key and holding it will pop up a small menu of special accented characters for that letter, for instance if I hold e, I can quickly select é. This would be great if I typed accented letters often. Except I don't. However, I often DO hold down a key to type things like "AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!" Well this option seems to be system-wide, affecting even Adium and Word, which is unacceptable. I can't even repeat non-accented characters like "Q," if I hold the key down it refuses to type more than one. How the hell do I turn this off? EDIT: I just found the solution. If you want to disable this, open terminal and type Reboot, and it will be back to normal. Holy crap how is this not an easily configurable option??
