I can’t enter special characters (i. e. äöëß) in Anki. Entering them anywhere else on the system works.
More info: I use a system keyboard layout to enter those via < right Alt (AltGr) + letter >.
Of course I tried googling the subject but to no avail.
Windows 10 1909
Anki version 2.1.47 (dc156f34)
Python 3.8.6 Qt 5.14.2 PyQt 5.14.2
This is an issue with the toolkit Anki uses, and using an international keyboard layout can work around it: Adding/Editing - Anki Manual
Thank you for the reply. That really is a shame, especially with Anki being such a good way to learn languages. This isn’t a full solution, as I cannot type “fluently” with the suggested way of entering special chars. Now I not only need to learn the language, but also a way to enter it - which is another thing to overcome.
But I also image that changing the toolkit would be very hard.
EDIT: It turns out I can type special chars in the “tags” field (when adding a new note) just fine!
