Quickly insert foreign characters

Here’s a small tip for quickly adding in foreign characters while typing, such as é, or ä.

All you have to do is hold the letter you want with whichever foreign accent it is you’re looking for, and a pop-up window will appear above it with all the options available, where you can click on the one you want using your mouse, or use the corresponding number key as a shortcut.

No but seriously, who ate all the crêpes?

    I thought I knew all there is to know about my Mac. But I didn’t know that one. And I mostly write in languages that need such letters ALL THE TIME.

    Many thanks to you.
