No diacritics for Portuguese in Android app

Hi,

When writing Portuguese sentences, on the website you can click on buttons of letters with diacritics. In the Android app however, these buttons are not there. With limited keyboard functions on my tablet, this means that I have to use the 'draw a letter'-function (I don't know the official name!) to create letters with diacritics. The letter ã however seems impossible to make though, so it seems impossible to type all sentences with correct diacritics on the tablet.

But maybe I'm missing a solution. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Vincent

Hi I have an ipad mini, I go into settings, keyboard and can change language. When I type a letter and hover all the Portuguese options come up eg. ã á à â.

You have to use a keyboard that supports international characters (or simply a Portuguese keyboard). In my case the configuration can be done under "Language & Input", but it might be different on your Android device. If you have the right configuration it should work like pinchbeck31 explains.
