I'm working in Illustrator and the text I am using requires an accent mark...think at the end of the word touche....it's not a comma or apostrophe it needs to be an accent mark. Is there keystroke combo out there to produce this?

Assuming you have an extended keyboard, hold down the Alt key, type the following numbers on the number keypad, then let go of the Alt key:

á: 0225

Á" 0193

 

This will work in any Windows program. For other accent marks, see:

If you still don't find what you are looking for, open Glyphs and you will see all available characters in the font you are using.

How REMOVED do you open glyphs and how do you get to your keyboard viewers.  These crowd sourced info spots are the worst.

Seriously?

input menu in the menu bar

You will then see a icon for it in the top right of the finder near or beside the clock. Click on that and choose "show keyboard viewer". This will bring up the viewer and you can then use your option, command and control keys in combination with all characters on the keyboard to get lots of good stuff.

In Illustrator, Window > Type > Glyphs.

Also: Illustrator and most major operating systems have Help menus.

To recap:

Use the Type>Glyphs panel in Illustrator (also in InDesign and Photoshop). Scroll until you find character:

Use a keyboard shortcut or OS utility

"And I'm trying to use Premiere Pro, not Illustrator"

Since you posted in the Illustrator forum, you are likely to get information that applies to Illustrator!

But Character Map, as I recommended, works with all apps.

" if there is a char map in the program, I am completely missing it."

It's not in the program, its a part of all Windows systems. If you can't find it, type CHARACTER MAP into the search space next to the START button.

On Mac, it's much easier :  OPT+e then type e to get é.

Windows has different procedures for different programs.. what I used to think was true is no longer, so it's best to use the Glyph panel?
