Description evandcombs 2015-06-02 15:08:56 UTC
It does not come up with an error, but whenever I try to create a character with an accent, for example ñ which is created by pressing alt+164, it doesn't work. I cannot even copy and paste such characters into Xamarin Studio. I do not know why this is not supported, but it needs to be.

That's an issue in the gtk IME layer I think.

At best it would be supported on windows like it's on linux - but I don't know if it's possible. (May be handled on windows level)
