I'm trying to create a list of keyboard short-cuts for international characters such as é, ñ, ç etc. I've had no trouble with Word for Windows shortcuts, ditto with MacOS shortcuts, but I can't find any reference anywhere to Word for Mac.

So, if you have office on a Mac, can you please let me know whether you can use the Microsoft shortcut equivalents, or the Mac shortcuts, or both?

Thanks very much

Well, version ?

If it is 2008 ,

1 go to top menu bar, press "Help" -> "Word Help"
2 on popup window, you should see "Topics" icons, press that
3 then it slides out another panel with tabs of "contents" and "Search", choose "contents"
4 look for "accessibility", then tree inside "Keyboard shortcuts".
5 well, many things there.

Most extended characters are available via the Option key in all apps, without needing to set anything up.

é = Option-e, e
ñ = Option-n, n
ç = Option-c

Thanks for the replies. I don't have Word for Mac. I don't even have a Mac!

So do the Mac keyboard shortcuts work across all applications?

And do the Word for Windows keyboard shortcuts work in Word for Mac, or not?

Thanks

Mac shortcuts work in all apps, including Office. I don't know about Windows shortcuts; I don't use Windows :)
