Accented character shortcuts and key long press don't work intermittently

I’ve noticed the same bug this morning.

Trigger: In Google Drive, using Docs, trying to type accent using any keyboard

Issue: I can’t seem to be able to type accents using my keyboard in Google Docs. Can’t type a “ô” or “É” as an example.

I just faced this same bug. Since a handle a large portion of my work through Google Drive apps, this bug is pushing me out of Station which I really love.

MacOS: 10.13.4 High Sierra

Hello,

I am writing in French from a French Canadian keyboard on Google Doc and the special characters like ê or ù are not working within Station. It works perfectly on the same Google Doc outside Station.

Problem still present with ê (typed as e). ù is working.

High Sierra, latest Station version, French keyboard.

This problem is still ongoing. Is this going to be fixed?

The issue I’m facing is:
I use the accented character shortcuts to type accented characters, for example using a US Qwerty keyboard I type option-e then press e to type the character é. Or option-` then press a to type à.

This behavior works on all apps in OSX, but but intermittently it will not work in Station. I type option-e then press e, and the character observed is e. The character expected is é.

Same issue for long press. When I press the key e for 2 seconds, I expect to see a list of different accented characters that can be typed. The intermittently observed behavior in Station is that it will instead type eeeeee.

This issue is intermittent but I have not yet found a reliable workaround. It completely prevents me from typing in French in Station when I encounter this issue (because I have a Qwerty keyboard).

Thanks for your help,
Chris
