Hey all. On mavericks here and I'm realizing that the shortcuts I used to use for foreign language accent marks no longer work.... This describes how I used to do it: To get accents on the Mac, hold down the Option key, and while holding it down, type the letter e; then release those keys and type the letter that you want the accent to appear on: á = Opt + e, then a é = Opt + e, then e í = Opt + e, then i ó = Opt + e, then o ú = Opt + e, then u For the ñ, hold down the Option key while you type the n; release and type n again. ñ = Opt + n, then n What setting needs to be switched on/off for these shortcuts to work while writing text? thanks!
