"Acute accent" symbol appears after switching between AD and other apps

Recommended Posts

I remember something similar coming up a while back when the language was set to Czech and the keyboard layout set to Czech QWERTY.

With the above language/keyboard layout, the = key (on an English UK keyboard layout, but is possibly a dedicated accent key on a Czech layout) acts as a trigger, which allows typing key combinations—for example typing acute accents.  EG:

= key plus the letter a is á
= key plus the letter e is é
= key plus the letter i is í
= key plus the letter o is ó
= key plus the letter u is ú

It almost seems as though when Affinity Photo/Designer is launched, it's simulating pressing this key; meaning this is the first key (the trigger key) of the key combination (so nothing is displayed on the screen), then when the user types it activates the second key in the key combination— creating the acute accent.

What's really odd though is that it only seems to do it with Czech QWERTY, not QWERTZ.  It will be interesting to know whether this is what the OP is using as well.
