Diacritics (Diacritical Marks)

How about an extension that allows the addition of diacritical/accent marks to all vowels in a selection – acute, grave, circumflex, umlaut, etc? In essence, it would be character replacement – e.g., a lowercase e (U+0065) would be replaced by, say, an é (U+00E9).

Consonant markings could also be considered - e.g., n–>ñ, c–>ç, etc.

Thanks @Skeuo112 and welcome! Sounds a good suggestion.

Maybe a good suggestion. But all these are available when using the International English Keyboard…

True, but many of the extensions replicate common functions so this does not preclude an extension. For example the formatting extension — for bold italic underline — is one of the most popular downloaded extensions.

In French, German and Dutch I use a total of 4 different accents on a total of 5 different vowels. In Russian I sometimes (for pedagogical-didactical reasons) emphasize 8 different vowels, and all of these both as lower and upper case characters. I can’t imagine how such a large number of accents in combination with all those vowels could be realized via PopClip. I also use 58 IPA characters (via Typinator). PopClip is a fantastic app that I wouldn’t want to miss for anything, but some things can be done more efficiently and faster via a shortcut than via a menu selection and the mouse or trackpad. Especially in a multilingual academic environment. I can’t remember when I bought PopClip but I’ve been using it for many years.

Most of us wouldn’t need that many. As with many things in PopClip, you may have to make choices. A dropdown menu with 3-5 options would suffice for most folks. As I use Spanish and French diacritics most often, I’d probably just need acute/grave accents, an umlaut, and ñ.

Exactly, the best thing with PopClip is that you can set it up just how you want. Everybody has a different workflow.
