Spanish Accent Custome keyboard Short cuts

Aug 17, 2013

I'm creating a Language Course with Storyline. I have created a quiz where the user will type the correct Spanish word, however some words in Spanish have accents; á Á, é, í, ó, ú. . . How can I create a variable or a shorcut combination of keys, such as

CTR + a = á

so when the user needs to type an accented vowel, they just use the shortcut?

Any ideas everybody... Thanks a lot in advance.

The some of the typical keyboard shortcuts for common symbols work in Storyline and some do not. For instance, Alt+0151 for Em dash (—)  and Alt+0150 for En dash (–) do not work in Storyline.

There is no way to customize them that I'm aware of. The text engine that Storyline uses is due for an overhaul and I would suggest submitting a feature request like Ashley said.
