Software Tips & Tricks Quick Tips for Word Users
Inserting Accents in Word The Software Tips & Tricks articles, Inserting Special Characters & Symbols and Inserting Accents in Word include codes for inserting special characters such as ¢, £, and ÷ and inserting accents such as ù, ç, and è into most Windows based products (Excel, Word, WordPerfect, email packages, Publisher, etc.)
This tip includes an alternative method for inserting accents into WORD: keyboard shortcuts.
- Place cursor where you want the accent inserted.
- Type the keyboard shortcut as listed in chart below.
- Type the character, upper or lower case, depending on requirement.
- Word will automatically insert the letter with an accent.
ACCENT SAMPLE KEYBOARD SHORTCUT
Aigue é Ctrl + ' (apostrophe)
Grave À Ctrl + ` (apostrophe under the tilde "~")
Tilde ñ Ctrl + Shift + ~ (tilde)
Circumflex î Ctrl + Shift + ^
Dieresis ÿ Ctrl + Shift + : (colon)
Caution: If a letter "normally" is not accented, Word will not place the accent on the letter. For example: Pressing Ctrl + ' followed by b will not add an accent to the letter b.
Get Back in Word
When you open a Word document, it opens at the beginning of the document, but what if you want to get back to the spot in the document where you last edited?
- Simply, press Shift + F5 to get back to where you left off.
- Shift + F5 will also move the insertion point to the last edited spot when a document has been opened and multiple revisions have been completed.
