special characters - umlaut, accent, etc.

How can I add special characters in my text using Scrivener? I have read posts about umlaut, and windows posts refer to alternate keyboards or hot keys, but there is no mention of these in the manual.

Thank you for your help!

If you click “Edit” at the very bottom of the list that pops up it says “Character Map…” click that and it should bring up a pop up window full of the special characters for you to choose from.
Hope this helps!
