characters with diacritics

A deniz
Hi,

Thank you and your team for making the programs freely available to users
who cannot afford expensive software.
After my veteran microsoft office loaded back then by the university has
crashed, I am planning to be a new user of "open Word" aka "Write."
However, in my brief first trial I realize one cannot use the Ctrl key to
insert diacritics on Latin characters, such as the accents in French.
Besides, Ctrl+e, for instance appears as a shortcut for text alignement, so
it is impossible to use it for an accented French "e". I suppose there is
another way to get this done. I would greatly appreciate if you could help
me around with it.

Thank you.
and all the best,

Ayse Deniz

Ayse,

One way of inserting special characters is to choose INSERT menu, then
select SPECIAL CHARACTER... and then choose the character you wish to
insert.

In the Help Menu (F1) under Keyboard there is a topic on assigning
keyboard shortcuts if you wish to add or change a shortcut.
