A question or two
It's nice to be part of the community. Thank you for having me!
Couple of questions. I'm guessing there's an iPad Mini forum and that if I look, I'll find it. If someone could point me in its general direction, though, I'd be very grateful.
The thing that I'd particularly like to know is, is there a way to reproduce an umlaut using the iPad (Mini specifically, but I imagine this would apply to the iPad generally) given that this keyboard doesn't have the option key? I did a search for a name containing letters with umlauts this morning but without them the word changes and the name wasn't found.
The first question is easy......

Welcome to the forum dabster
As for the second, do you mean like this ö
If so, press the letter that requires an umlaut, keep your finger on it and a few different options will appear, slide your finger over your chosen configuration(without taking finger off screen)
Hope this helps
Or should I say

If I type "Motörhead" my iPad supplies the umlaut automatically. Wonder if that says more about me than it does the iPad?
Double s (ß) is also available, from the German international keyboard.
Forgot this bit. Here's the iPad mini forum.

Maybe we got some Motörhead fanboys at Apple :D
Thanks everyone - much appreciated!
Turns out the forum was embarrassingly easy to find, which is not to say I'm not grateful for your help, of course.
Yes, exactly, the ü or the ö is what I had in mind. What is really nifty is that I can write about the Citroën, too - or even Æssop. And thanks, Kevin, the ß will come in handy, too.
