Problem typing foreign letters/diacritic in Mac

There is an a problem typing letters like éê etc in anki in the desktop version for mac.
When you hold down a key to choose a letter it will repeat the letter without the diacritic before the choice of diacritic appears.
So for example
“eeeeé”
Will be the usual outcome.

I don’t have a solution to the holding down thing, but you can also type accents on Mac by pressing “alt/option” + a letter. For example, “alt/option” + “c” = “ç”. And “alt/option” + “e” = “´”, and then you can just press “e” again to make “é”. You have to memorize the keys, but this is how I type accents and I think it’s faster once you memorize them.
