I'm unable to get the accent menu to show up when I hold down a key. Do I have to enable the long-press accent menu in Mavericks somehow manually?

  • What apps are you trying it with? Do you have any apps that might customise the keyboard (KeyRemap4MacBook, etc)? – grg Jan 25 '14 at 16:17

Got it working by adding a second language in the Language & Region pref pane and rebooting.

Now the menu shows up.

  • So you only had one language in that list to start with? Had you removed some earlier or was it that way from the beginning? – Tom Gewecke Jan 25 '14 at 22:42
