“A compose key is a special key that allows you to press multiple keys in a row to get a special character.”
Like many, I am using a keyboard with a US English layout.
Unfortunately, GNOME’s compose key does not appear to work in Obsidian. This means that entering special characters necessitates the use of either the Characters application to copy and paste or another Markdown editor to work with the compose key.
This is quite disruptive to any kind of workflow as soon as writing in languages such as French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian or German (and probably many other languages) is required.
Obsidian is currently the only application installed on my GNOME desktop that does not work with the compose key. I would be most grateful if this issue could be addressed.
