Hi. I'm trying to add the usual French text accents to words (fiancé for example) but can't find the shortcut.

Any ideas?

Hey Jarrod, all the same accent shortcuts that work elsewhere in macOS will work in Pixelmator Pro. For example, if you press Option-E while typing, a marked acute accent will appear and when you type the letter e, it will turn into an é. An even easier method is to simply press and hold the E key to bring up all the character variations for that character. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, they were the first things I tried and neither actually produce the desired effect. I’ll keep looking.

Are these features working in other apps? If so, then it might be a bug, though not one I've been able to repro...

I think it may have been a temporary issue. Thanks
