Spanish accents and symbols / Acentos y símbolos en español PC & Mac & Linux

Post  Radmin on Tue Jul 20, 2010 10:27 pm

NEW: Use the clickable accented characters (currently available on most WR forums). When you post using advanced or preview mode (not Quick Reply), you will see a list of accented characters at the top right side of the reply window. Click an accented letter to insert it in your post. Click the sign to expand the list. The list of available characters depends on the forum where you are posting.

► Clickable accented characters tool.


NUEVO: Hemos incluido una opción para poder usar caracteres con tildes y signos de puntuación propios del castellano. Ahora podrán hacer clic sobre las letras para insertarla en su texto (como por ejemplo "á", "é", "í", "ó", "ú", "ñ", "¿" y "!") si su teclado no les permite escribirlos directamente.

Para poderlos utilizar, es necesario elegir el "modo avanzado", ya que no está disponible en el de "respuesta rápida". Encontrarán dichos caracteres a la derecha del botón de tachado ABC.
