Diereses prevent diphthongs; support diacritics awareness

--

Hi. My name is Daniel.

I'm mostly active on Ask Different, where I'm now a moderator◆, but I sometimes visit some other Stack Exchange sites (more to read than anything else).

I first got into computers in 1982, and learned to program on an Apple //+. Switched to Mac in 2003. I'm not a computer pro; it's just a hobby. I hope any of my questions or answers are helpful.

comment How to change Text-related keyboard shortcuts
That said, having switched from Windows myself some ten years ago, learning the standard Mac keyboard layout really isn't too awful, and once you get used to it, it can pay off.

comment How to change Text-related keyboard shortcuts
Are you using a notebook computer with internal keyboard, or an external keyboard attached to your Mac? What program(s) do you use for text composition/software development (I assume not vi, from your comments)? I'm afraid this might be easier to swap in particular programs than system-wide.

comment What's the equivalent of windows explorer?
Just to be precise, the Finder doesn't replace Windows Explorer; Windows Explorer was Microsoft's attempt to duplicate the functionality of the Finder. The Finder was a feature on the Mac in 1984, long before Windows Explorer.
