The option key with any alphanumeric or symbol key in a Mac keyboard would insert a special character. The special character would also change when shift is also held with option.
E.g., the following are what I use everyday.
- Option + hyphen = en dash
- Option + Shift + hyphen = em dash
- Option + E = acute accent
Apart from that, I could not find a comprehensive mapping document for each key without a trial and error.
Can anyone share such a document or link?
