How to type Spanish on OSX?
I am on osx. I'd like to know how to type the Spanish characters on it.
any reference or supplementary document would be better!
You can use option + some letters to "pre-set" a character to use on the next keypress.
For instance: Pressing option + e will give you an accent dash in yellow, it will use that on whatever letter you use next when appliccable. So option + e followed by another e will produce: é.
So far I've used (i will use a random letter to demonstrate the addition)
option + e = é | option + u = ö | option + n = ñ |
you can use the option + ` to use accent markings the other way (left instead of right).
I'm sure there are many more, but I didn't need anything else so far so I didn't bother checking. Google for "mac special characters" and I'm sure you will find a lot.
I find that just holding down the key of the letter brings up a pop up menu of accented characters for all (common) languages. I then type in the number of which one I want. On the phone I hold down and slide to pick. It's built-in to OSX and very easy.
