However, there is a MacOS feature that I miss terribly, and I can get around it in Word, but I'm not sure how to do so in Scrivener.
I need to be able to use special characters without having to type out an alt code. And not just because it's a huge waste of time and hard to remember, but also because I do most of my writing on a laptop that doesn't have a numpad. On Mac, it was just a matter of holding down the vowel (I almost never used characters on consonants), but those days are gone.
In Word I can hotkey special characters like ä. Can Scrivener do this as well? How do I access it?
Also, can the Beta / will Scriv 3 be able to do this? And if so, how?
