I am using a Mac, and the “ABC - Extended” keyboard. Normally i can put a breve over a letter u (as in right here -> ŭ), by typing Option (Alt)-b, then the letter u. But in Atom (version 1.12.7), when i type Option-b, the cursor moves to the beginning of the previous word. I searched for “key bindings”, but i’m not finding anything. (As you can guess, i’m new to Atom.)
I can do other overstrikes like ĉ, ĝ, ĥ, ĵ, ŝ, (because they take Option-6, then the letter) but not ŭ.
I would love to know if this is a bug in Atom, or is it just me? I believe that in previous versions of Atom i could just write without any problems, but maybe that combination didn’t come up before?
Thank you for any help.
