Mac keyboard accents are not supported

1. Describe the bug/issue you’re running into?
Typing an accented letter in Mac OS can be done by keeping a keyboard letter pressed which reveals a range of accents.

2. Are you able to consistently reproduce it? If so what are the steps?
Open Figjam on a mac, type into a note, long press E, and try to insert an accented letter (e.g. é).

3. Share a screenshot, recording, console log, link to the file, etc.

4. Is the issue only happening in desktop app or a specific browser , or both?
Tested in the browser

5. What OS/version and/or browser/version are you using?
Desktop Chrome Version 89.0.4389.128 (Official Build) (x86_64)

@Benjamin_Tran_Dinh thanks for reporting this bug, we were able to replicate it in the web browser. This feature is working in the desktop app, so we recommend using the desktop app for now as a workaround. Let us know if this helps!


I have this issue with the Figma application on a Mac.
When I try to type José using the mac press and hold shortcut, I get Joseé.

Figma Desktop App version 97.7
