A nice simple one - can anyone remind me which combination of CTRL/ALT/DEL/SHIFT is needed before the 3-digit decimal code (ANSI) in order to insert accented characters (I'm referring here to MultiTerm termbase entries).

Regards,

Victoria

Alt + 0? Nov 21, 2007

Thanks Annelise,

That is Alt + 0 (the number rather than the letter, right?)

Does this have to be followed directly by the code?

For example, I'm am pressing ALT + 0 + 232 (for 'e' accent grave) and nothing is happening. Am I forgetting something? Or does this maybe only work in Word.

Thanks again,

Victoria
