Virtual keyboard: missing characters with accents?

Hi,

I have been a rather happy user of Odyssey for more than a year. A couple of time I thought I ran into something strange regarding the virtual keyboard, but had no time to investigate further. This weekend I gave it a deep research and I stumbled on something as awkward as the missing text search function:

When writing in French, we very often need the "é" character, and somewhat often the "à" one. But I cannot find them on the virtual keyboard...

By hitting "&" then "àÀ", I get a set of less used accented characters, but not those needed ones.

Did I miss something or are they really missing?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

V.

Strange, I do have both grave and acute a's and e's.

In particular, "à" is the first letter from left, upper row, while "é" is the fourth letter from left, upper row. (GUI language set to "English" or "French" or "Italian". However other accented letters show or do not show up, depending on the GUI language.)

Thanks for your response Alberto. Actually, I noticed yesterday that the keyboard is not the same when you invoke it for notes (accents are OK) or to enter text in a web form. The accented characters are missing in the web mode. Can you please confirm?

I confirm.

In the browser, the keyboard shows up with 10 "blank" keys, and it lacks acute a's and e's, among others.
