Hello
I'm using WF 4 more and more, but I'm still find some issues.
One of them is the use of uppercase accented letters. On WF3 I use ALT+ SHIFT + letter, which is the combination I use when I write on the Mac. This is the only way to get them both on WF3 and Mac.
But I cannot do this on WF4. Is there a way to get this settled?

Thanks a lot
Lucia

same problem Nov 21, 2016

FYI, I have the same problem with the German Umlaut "Ä".
WP4 doesn't get it, not even from dictation software. I have to use "ä" and then uppercase it by using a shortcut.
A fix sure would be nice...

Ctrl+Shift+: Nov 21, 2016

Hi Lucia,

Have you tried Ctrl+Shift+: and then pressing A to add umlaut A? For upper case do Ctr+Shift+: to activate umlaut combo and the press Shift+A.
Hope this helps.

Thank you,

John

Still impossible Nov 22, 2016

Hello
I don't get any result and I still cannot get accented uppercase vocals. I tried your shortcut key combination, but there is no way.

Do you plan to get it implemented?

Thanks
Lucia
