ANSI layout plus german umlauts

(1/2) > >>

Albay:
I want to switch from german ISO layout to US ANSI layout, but I still need to be able to type the german umlauts. I Want to avoid switching the whole keyboard from english to german so I am looking for options on how I can type them.

I was thinking of puttung them at their original places and acces them by pressing ALT. So ALT + ';' results in '' and ALT + '-' results in ''.

What other options are there for typing them on an ANSI keyboard?

AJM:
One easy option would be to switch the keyboard language of your OS to "US International".

Which key combinations would get me the umlauts?

MukeMukem:
Alt + q = / y = / p = / s = / 5 =

rowdy:
If you are using a Mac, you can type Option-U followed by O = and Opt-U + Shift-O = .

Opt-S = (fairly obvious when you consider what sounds like).

This is on an ANSI keyboard with no special layouts configured.
