Suddenly dead keys are disabled, but I didn't change settings.
- I'm running Windows 8.1.
- I didn't spill anything over the keyboard.
- The apostrophe (
'), double quote (
") backtick (
`) circumflex (
^) and tilde (
~) are inserted instantly into a text field which has the focus, instead of waiting for the following typed character in order to determine if these can be combined. Now I cannot type fiancée, août, señorita, geïnteresseerd, and überhaupt.
- I suspect restarting the computer will solve the issue, but that's not an elegant solution.
Is there some keystroke in Windows 8.1 which silently enables or disables dead keys? And how can I re-enable them?
Notice that I didn't type abovementioned words, I just googled them to make my point. ;-)
