    The suggestion "ctrl+', then press e" isn't working for me. Do you have any suggestions?
    Thank you

      Ctrl+1+: will not give you anything Sherkleton. You didn't mean Ctrl+Shft+: did you? This will only work on letters that use that accent (like u and o).
      "ctrl+', then press e" will not work in Excel, Elizabeth. try it in Word or Outlook. You may find that it won't work in a font that doesn't have the e' character and may not work in "plain font" situations.

    The first suggestion does not seem to work. With ctrl + 1 + : then U


    Any ideas as to why?

    thanks
