French accented text in Rise 360

Dec 24, 2021

Can somebody please tell me how to insert accented characters into my text? I need to put some words in both French & English (e.g., engineers/ingenieurs) but I don't know how to include a single accented letter. I thought I would be able to just insert a symbol character (like in Word), but I don't see that capability in Rise. What's the fix for this?

Hi Gayle,

You can get the ALT CODES from this site: 

French alphabet 

This is how you use ALT CODES:

  1. Make sure that you switch on the Number Lock on your keyboard. 
  2. In Rise, edit the text text block where you insert the special character.
  3. Press and hold down the ALT key (left ALT key on the keyboard).
  4. Type the alt code (you should use the numbers on the keypad, not the ones on top row of the keypad) for the special character or symbol you want to get and then release the ALT key.
