Popup when holding [aeiuy]

When I hold down aeiuy a popup opens to change the character to umlauts:

I'd like to disable this behaviour. Maybe it is already possible and I wasn't able to find the switch yet?

This is not a BTT but a macos feature (Diacritical Marks). As far as I know this can be disabled with this terminal command.

defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool true

Or use "TinkerTool".

Thank you so much! You don't know how long I was searching for a solution!

What a coincidence, that I found this feature shortly after installing BTT :smiley:

This should be the opposite, if you want to enable the feature again :slightly_smiling_face:

defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

I used TinkerTool, but thanks!
