Way to Get Characters with Accent Marks or Umlauts

Postby prkraus » Thu Mar 31, 2016 2:37 pm

Hello,

Is there a way to access typewritten characters in Photoshop Elements such as characters with accent marks or umlauts over them? I am trying to type an e with an accent into a text layer.

Many thanks.

I use the Character Map in Windows. All Programs > Windows Accessories > System Tools > Character Map. Select the appropriate font from the drop-down, scroll to the character that you want and select it, click Copy. Go back to PE and paste your character into the text. You can then adjust size, color, etc. as any other text. If you're going to be doing a lot of this you can just leave the Character Map window open while you're working and bounce back and forth easily.
