    Your Android RDP client works great, except for one thing: typing accented characters, like á and ä. The Windows client makes this possible with the US-International keyboard by pressing Ctrl + ' or " and then typing a, resulting in á or ä. How to achieve this in the Android client? Setting the Android keyboard setting to US-International doesn't work. With another RDP client (from Xtralogic) this works for á, but not for ä. Any thoughts on this?

    Do you use the standard android keyboard in Parallels Client? I'm asking because we have a PC-keyboard mode that replaces the OS keyboard with ours.

    I do. When I enable PC keyboard mode, every character I type is shown twice. Lliikkee tthhiiss. And in that mode typing accented characters is also not possible.

    I found out the problem is related to Microsoft Swiftkey. Whenever that keyboard app is enabled as the current input method in the Android settings, typing accented characters (and sometimes pressing backspace) doesn't work well in the Parallels Client. But when enabling Gboard for example, everything is fine. Any idea how to fix the incompatibility with Swiftkey?
