    Typing letters with accents on a Storm

    Advertisement



    Last week I got a new Storm 9500, coming from a 8800

    I work and live in Spain and write a lot in Spanish
    To type letters with accents, on the 8800 I could type the letter, hold it down and use the track ball to select the accent I wanted.

    However on the Storm I was puzzled and could not find anything in the manual

    However I finally discovered how to do it and it is easy realy:
    In landscape keyboard mode:
    - have Spanish language selected
    - touch (not press the letter for instance "e"), let go and the accented letter options appear on screen
    - type the accented letter you want, for instance "é"

    I hope this may be useful for other pinstackers.

    I'll have to find it but there's a post of all symbols available for the bb you copy that list from a pc and email it to your bb address and then you just copy the symbol you want. Let me find the thread for you.

    For regular symbols like "é" just press the letter and roll the trackball while you are still holding the button. It works for many of the letters to provide different symbols
