Diereses prevent diphthongs; support diacritics awareness

--

Hi. My name is Daniel.

I'm mostly active on Ask Different, where I'm now a moderatorâ—†, 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 Do I Use 'cp' to Overwrite Files?
If you don't have permission to overwrite the target file, this will fail. If you really want to overwrite a target file, you can use sudo at the beginning of the command. But use with caution!

Cool. I just bought the current version on the Mac App store. This looks really promising.

comment Is it possible to use US English keyboard layout with dead keys in Mavericks similar to those from Windows and Linux?
Great. I couldn't tell if you had a real question or if you were ranting that Apple wasn't doing dead keys "right" according to your definition of dead keys. Now I see you're actually looking for something in particular, and not just saying "they're doing it wrong." +1

Where do you get your definition of what dead keys "really" are?

comment What are some good iPad apps for students?
Questions suitable for this site have concrete answers. "What app do you recommend to solve this particular problem?" is a single question with possible concrete answers. "What are some good apps for productivity?" is a great lead into a conversation, but not a concrete question for this site. The fact that your description of what you are looking for ends in "etc." and doesn't have a closed form is a good indicator that you are asking too broad a question. Your last comment is telling: this is supposed to be a question, not the start of a thread. That's why it's closed.
