International characters
You can create international characters by combining a letter
and a diacritical (accent). Diacriticals available on the keyboard

character first, followed immediately by the diacritical. For
example, press ‘E’ followed by ‘´’ to get é.
To add a diacritical to an existing character, use or to
place the cursor under the character to be changed, then press
the appropriate diacritical key.

The Dymo 1000 Electronic Labelmaker enables you to create a
wide variety of high quality self-adhesive labels of up to 100
characters.
The Labelmaker uses 12mm (1/2") wide tape cassettes in a
number of label colours.
Normal or double width, full and half-height text can be printed
in a single line, or in half-height on two lines.
Text can be set horizontally or
and is
always centred on the label.
