Since then my use of the umlaut (eg "Fück!") has dramatically decreased. There will be occasional times when "Drat!" simply doesn't suffice.
I am impressed with your ability to spawn an umlaut from a mere English keyboard.....

There are some things that just cannot be adequately communicated without descending into the vernacular....

Set your computer to use the US international keyboard instead of standard US. Ümläüts ärë ëäsÿ.

Being from Ireland the keyboard layout is identical to England and I use the "United Kingdom Extended keyboard" as my default mapping under Windows. Then to get "ü" I combine 'alt-gr'+'double quote' followed by "u". I'm sure there is a US equivalent extension (United States-International?). The one character that occasionally I have to go to Character Map for is the degree "°" character.

While the above mappings don't cover everything, the associations are simple, alt-gr+double-quote gives you umlauts, single-quote gives an acute accent, a "^" gives circumflex, etc. Basically look for what looks like what accent you are adding to the character, then press alt-gr and that accent together, release and then press the character which you want to add the accent to.

On the US international keyboard the "alt-gr" key is the right alt key. It's probably that on the UK extended too. Although one can go to a "picker" for characters not on the keyboard, I usually just type in the unicode code. Start with ctrl-shift-u, followed by the hex code, followed by the enter key. So for instance, degree=00B0 (°), ellipsis=2026 (…), dagger=2020 (†), star=2605 (★; there are actually many stars; this one is useful for ASL), and asterism=2042 (⁂). I have these ones I use frequently written on a piece of paper next to my computer.

...We also strive to support our products both during and after the sale.
That's a bit modest...the support is fabulous, as are the products.

On topic, I've bought and played lotsa Lone Canuck stuff. Most of it is very good or excellent.

There are hotkeys for all the "modified vowel" special characters, easily located via character map. With a daughter named Zoë, I find Alt+0235 especially useful. :D

@Jon H: No, I have better sense than to lay odds on forces of nature. :p

The Mila 18 thread has found a cousin
We are far away from debating about a scenario based on a genocidal crime (even though it depicts a partisan fighting which never occurred, in place of the outright machine gunning of civilians).
