Hi,

 

In that case it does depend entirely on the programme you are using to type in.

Most word processors like Microsoft Word have a solution to get characters such as these:

à, è, ì, ò, ù.

 

In the Microsoft office suite users can utilize the following combinations of keys to add accent marks to letters. For example, to get the character à, you'd press the Ctrl Key, and while holding that key, press the ` Key as well. Then, release both keys and quickly press the A Key.


Note: You must press the letter key quickly after releasing the shortcut keys. Otherwise, the non-accented letter is created.

 

Here is a great website that shows how to do it for each character you want:

that site really helps. I can't get the typing combination to work reliably, but the insert>symbol route is exactly what I needed. I can never remember where to look.

When using the key board if you long press on the letter it will give a pop up box with the choice to accent the letter.

I do that but the selected character doesn't appear. Worked perfectly on the S7 but nothing happens on S20. Do I need to activate something?
