How do you type special characters with this keyboard, such as ō, œ, ã, etc?

The only way I have found so far to do this is to deactivate the keyboard by lifting up the iPad. Without the keyboard these letters can be accessed by holding the key down, but holding down the key doesn’t do anything with the keyboard.

  • It is possible to use the Smart Keyboard with these special characters. All you have to do is use the “Option” button and then press down a key. For example to get “œ” hold down “option” and press “q”. This works for a variety of characters but you might have to play around to find the right one. After that it is easy. For example I am learning German and now it is easy to incorporate umlauts. I just hold down “option” then press “U” and then the letter I want to add an umlaut to.
