SublimeText 3 Fix greek (and other languages) accented chars input

1 minute read

Yesterday I installed SublimeText 3 editor (build 3143) in my PC and the first thing I realised was that I could not type any Greek accented characters. Thus when I wanted to type: ex

Το γοργόν και χάριν έχει.

, Sublime actually showed

Το γοργ´ον και χ´αριν ´εχει

At first place I thought that maybe was a bug of this new version (I used SublimeText 2 for quite a long time without any problems). I search for bugs and then after quite some time I found in this StackOverflow article that many people had experienced the same problem.
