On my Word training course today, I had someone who had to write letters to someone called Noémie. She wondered how to get the accent into the name and then how to be able to do that easily each time she typed the name.
To put the accent over the e, we first selected the letter to include the symbol, we went to the Insert tab, then in the Symbols group, went to the Symbol dropdown and clicked More Symbols.
We scrolled down to the required symbol, then clicked Insert, then clicked Close. Noemie then became Noémie.
To save doing the same thing each time, we then copied the word Noémie and went to File – Options. We clicked the Proofing tab, then clicked AutoCorrect Options.
In the With box, I used Ctrl + V to paste the name as I wanted to see it. In the Replace box, I typed the name as I would normally type it. Click OK twice. Now typing in Noémie will put the accent on straightaway.
