1.
If the keyboard shows such signs like ¨, ^, ´, ` etc.
You can type first the sign and then the character.

2.
If not you can use the Alt-combination:
You hold the Alt-key (left hand) and at the same time you type numbers in the right number board. Examples:

for German:
Ä = 142
ä = 132
Ö = 153
ö = 148
Ü = 154
Ü = 129

 

other examples:
ç = 135
ñ = 164
é = 130
á = 160
â = 131
etc.

3.
You can reconfigure your keyboard in the system - but this is akward since you don't see the right characters if you have not marked them.

The last button in the second head line calls up a table with often needed special characters.
This fourth way is probably the easiest one.

You can facilitate typing in special characters by using the auto-correct function of your text program.

Then you can use normal characters on your keyboard which will be automatically replaced by special characters.

Some useful replacements in our field may be:

mu  →  µ

uf  →  µF

pf  →  pF

nf  →  nF

om  →  Ω

ko →  kΩ

mo →  MΩ

+-  →  ±

>=  →  ≥

<=  →  ≤

%%  →  ‰

ae  →  ä

oe  →  ö

ue  →  ü

mm2  →  mm²

<<  →  «

>>  →  »

=>  =  →

Best Regards

Jacob
