No Insert Symbol Capability


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows XP

Description of the issue

I am astonished to find that there is no way to insert symbols in a text field.  I need to be able to enter accented letters because I am managing member information for an organization which has international members.

When I contacted Tech Support to find out how to insert symbols, I was told that since this is a database program and not a word processing program, this function was not considered necessary.

Surely, I am not the only user who needs to be able to enter names and addresses which have accented letters.

Is there a work-around?
