How to activate accents and diacritics
0

Can anybody tell me how to combine the 'Caron' with an 'E' in a font that does contain the accent but hasn't a glyph that combines the two? My keyboard is set to UK English and I am on a Mac.

I have the same question for activating other glyphs and diacritics in the same font that contains them, but I don't know how to use them when typing.

Cheers

If a precomposed diacritical glyph does not exist in a font, then your second option is to see if the font contains a 'combining mark' eg. the combining caron at Unicode 030C.

Hi, it just contains the 'Caron' on its own at Unicode 02C7.
