How to type a capital letter from the extended Latin alphabet in OS X


I'm aware that if you want to type a character from extended Latin alphabet in OS X (like in the word über), you just press the basic symbol key for a while and then a popup occurs with the list of extended symbols.

But, I would like to type this letter in uppercase. I press the symbol key (for Example U + Shift), then see the character popup. Then I press the number of the required symbol, although I am given an @ sign instead of the uppercase Ü.

How can I type capital letters with accents? I don't want to copy and paste symbols that I require every time from the web or developer console.

Hold the shift key then the number corresponding. It works just fine. I think you are forgetting to let go of the shift before hitting the number. Hence the unexpected output.

Type diacritics

Hold shift+U then, after popup let go of the shift key and hit the corresponding number.
Ü ← result
