Summary0028677: Code Editor: [Mac] Unable to type accented characters using Option+Key combo or Emoji/Character window
DescriptionYou are unable to type accented characters on the Mac IDE using the Option+Key accent combo or Emoji/Character window.

To type an accented character on Mac, you must first press Options + e, then aeiou depending on what accented character you want. This works in text-edit and other Mac applications. You can also use the Emoji/Character exploration window by pressing and holding the desired character and selecting an accented version from the pop-up window.

The IDE supports neither of these options on Mac, so it is currently very difficult to type accented characters short of pasting them in manually.
Steps To Reproduce1. Open the Mac IDE.
2. Create a script.
3. Press Options+E, then any of aeiou.
4. Observe that no accented character is typed.
5. Hold down the E key (to open the Emoji/Character window).
6. Observe that the IDE repeatedly enters text instead, as it does on Windows.
