Quanta accented characters

I use quanta+ a lot, and do a lot of web sites in Spanish and Catalan, therefore need to use a lot of accented characters, etc. Quanta+ (under 'settings' -> 'Configure Quanta...') has the option to do "Automatic replacement of the accented characters", in previous versions, when this was selected, I would type and it would be automatically replaced with its unicode equivalent. This does not work in the new Quanta+ version 3.4.3, does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

Did you try your question on the quanta mailing lists? They'll probably know more about it.

I also have this problem. The option is checked but accented characters are not replaced.

It seemd to be the Quanta+ 3.4.3 package distributed with Ubuntu Breezy Badger so I uninstalled it and installed Quanta+ 3.4.2 from source but accented characters are still not replaced.

Thanks for letting us know Antz, I am glad to hear that it is not only me. Perhaps you could add to the bug report at
the more people that confirm the bug, the more likely it is to be fixed soon.
