For some reason, a long press of a letter doesn't bring up the accented letters anymore on the Touch Bar (MacBook Pro 13-inch, 2018, US keyboard). It does bring up the accented character menu, so that you can chose by pressing a number.
I spent couple of hours on the phone with Apple Care folks trying to figure it out but still don't have a solution. I don't have Webroot or any such other program installed...what's really annoying is that I created a second test account, and there it works fine. Has anyone figured out a solution to this???
Edit: This is a different question b/c it's not an issue with Webroot or some other anti-virus software. I don't have those installed.
Also, I tried a PRAM and SMC reset and no help. It doesn't work in safe boot either - not on the main account at least.
Edit 2: Added image. This is what should be happening on the Touch Bar. But it doesn't.
