Character picker inexplicably stopped working tonight in OS X Lion. I was trying to type in Spanish but now the keys which used to accept tildes or accents are merely repeating.
I tried entering the following command in Terminal and restarting my MacBook Air, but it didn't restore the Character Picker:
defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool TRUE
I also checked which keyboard I am using for input. I am still using the U.S. keyboard, and that hasn't changed.
I tried logging out, restarting, and shutting down.
Is there anything else I can do to restore Character Picker?
