I am using a normal german keyboard and am well aware of the different keystrokes, to insert different diacritic characters as œ or Á. But being a programmer, I desire to be able to insert some diacritic characters directly, instead of using that key as dead key. For example, I would love to insert ^ by only tying the ^ once.

How to get rid of those dead keys?


One way is to create a custom layout with Ukelele

  • Thank you for your answer. There is no onboard posibility?

  • @Jan You could create a text replacement in system prefs/keyboard/text, but it requires typing two characters I think. Feb 28 '17 at 13:17
