foreign language keyboard - uncommon characters

I have a BB Torch 9800 v. 6.0 Bundle 1907 v 6.0.0.448 PF 6.4.0.210. I can activate the foreign language input and foreign language display. But how on Earth can I use the keyboard to type uncommon characters such as in German ö, ä, ü, or in Spanish ñ, í, or French é, è, à?

Hey hpgassner,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

To type accented/special characters hold a letter key & slide your finger left or right on the trackpad.

 

Thanks.

Fantastic. So simple. Yet, nobody at Optus Support in Sydney appeared to know it, BlackBerry didn't reply to an email. I couldn't find it in the Help section. Thank you for your help.
