How can i type international alphabet characters into keywords, titles, and Captions in Lightroom 4? Usual Microsoft key shortcuts not working.
I haven't found a way to do that directly, but there is a workaround. It' s a bit cumbersome, so it's only good for the occasional character.
In MS Word or any other text editor create a file that contains all the international characters you need.
When you need to insert one of these characters into Lr (captions, title, keywords) copy the character from your text document and paste it into Lr where needed.
On Windows Ctrl + C / V works fine.
A google search brought this up: http://tlt.its.psu.edu/suggestions/international/accents/codealt.html
It works in Lr - at least it does in Windows.
