Getting Accents on Letters with a MacBook Pro

I needed to get an accent over an ‘e’ like this: é

This is the best write-up I could find on the matter. It was buried in a forum post, so I’ve re-posted here, giving credit to Louishen

most of the accents are option vowels – that’s the easiest way to remember it

é (press option e then the letter you want, e in this case. optione then press a gives you á)

è (press e then option `, top left of keyboard next to 1) likewaise option ` then i gives you ì)

ü (option u then u)

â (option i then a)

otherwise a simple option a gives you å

option c gives you ç

option o gives you ø
