    Type the "compose key" (Shift+Right Ctrl on my german keyboard layout, but it seems to be the same by default with an american layout), then press the modifier key and the key to be modified.

    I.e. for umlaut o (ö), type this:
    Shift+Right Ctrl, ", o

    There also other modifier keys, like `, ~, ', for getting characters like ò, õ and ó f.e.

    PS, for "ß" type Shift+Right Ctrl, s, s.

    It is made very clear at the top of each and every page in this sub-forum:
    Please don't ask propduct questions here!
    Thus this post is at the wrong place.

    While we like the attitude of many here to answer as good and as soon as possible to questions/problems, please also cooperate in keeping these forums logicaly accessable for other people by furthering the posting in the correct (sub-)forums. It is the only way that many people interested in a subject either for answering or learning will see it now and later.

    Thus please do not start a discussion in the wrong place, but report the thread (the black triangle with the ! below the post for it to be moved.

    This one is CLOSED and will be moved to Applications.
