Can someone tell me how I insert letters with accents (French/Spanish) into a quiz? I'm used to working on a Mac so a while since I've been on a windows laptop. I've tried using the Alt key and numbers but it's not working. Any ideas please?

Thank you for posting here!

The letters with umlaut or other upper parts (e.g. Ȕ, Ȭ, Ȫ, Ž) can be inserted into a quiz as images or if you copy/paste the text message from other document (e.g. from some Word file).

However, it should be noted that the symbols can be warped due to the Flash format peculiarities if you use some fonts that are not installed into the system properly.
That is why, let me please suggest you apply the Arial font to text messages with complex symbols.

Hope you find this information helpful!

Hi Jules

You can usually find any character in the Windows Character Map program, then copy from it and paste into your quiz.
(I'd rather not use images for those)
I believe accented letters are included in all usual fonts, no big issue.

Go to Start menu > Programs > Accessories >
or Start menu > Programs > Accessories > System Tools
