10.7: Accented characters
Authored by: brucio on Aug 01, '11 09:45:56AM

I'm going to wait for 10.7.2 before I upgrade, but I would like to know if the old Option-key method still works. The new method might be fine for an iPhone, but it seems like a step backward for touch typists.

10.7: Accented characters
Authored by: jlundell on Aug 01, '11 03:01:50PM

Yes, the old method still works, and in fact is required for other special characters. For example, the iPhone-style mechanism doesn't work for things like ellipsis, dashes, etc, at least not as far as I can see (period and hyphen both repeat).

The old method does not work in this text box, but I'm guessing that's because of some JavaScript hackiness, since it does seem to work elsewhere.
