Umlaut a

Does anyone know how to type ä in a Dorico title or subtitle? Dorico doesn’t accept the Windows key combinations I found by Googling.

My piece is “The Troublesome Elf (Der Lästige Elf).”

Thank you. --Konrad

Dorico 4.3.20

You can open Character Map and choose whatever you need.
I prefer selecting the international keyboard and ä is AltGr+Q

Viele Grüße!

copy and pasting the character in usually works, too.

Thanks. Copying from character map worked.

Also if you have Windows PowerToys installed with QuickAccent enabled, you can select accented letters by simply holding down a key and using the L/R arrows to scroll along a row of options: includes some ligatures (as in ‘Chœur’) and Greek letters - seems to work with most apps.


Excellent. Thanks.
