thanks a lot for that info, but this IMHO means, that the result has to do with some operating system issues.
So when I just now type Alt+224 (Num Block) this is the outcoming result: "Ó"
And the same is created in SE.
I am on Win 10 prof. German with SE 2019 MP03
But since this happens at operating system level too, I do not think that SE ius taken any influence to that behaviour, isn't it?
Are You on Win 7?
again thanks for answering, and in the meantime (tanks google) I have found, that this is not only a personal problem, it is found often.
See for examplte this page:
and many other when searching for "Why does [Alt+224] create ..."
Till now, none of the given hints has changed anything here.
Still trying to find a solution too!
@hawcad I'm using Windows 10, English language.
It may have something to do with the Font used as I believe each font can have different graphics representing identical address registers. I'm using standard Arial.
font I suppose is not the reason, since I have changed it to several different fonts and my personal preference also is Arial.
For me it looks like as this is a country/language issue if reading those several post, which were found for the "Alt+224" search .
I think I have to accept this situation and this behaviour, at leas as long as anybody out there will find a better and working way.
Is it possibly due to language settings or maybe different keyboard layout issues? Because mine has always been the same, although yes it does sometimes change with font. But much like Ø (alt + 0216 or a smaller one ø (alt + 0248)) degrees °(alt + 248) or my favorite, the first two letters of TOOL's 3rd album Æ (alt + 0198) they are burnt in my memory and nearly always have worked the same. For me, at least.
