Text too small?   Zoom in:
← If you know (from your own outside knowledge) that a name has a long-vowel, then use CTRL-C (copy) & CTRL-V (paste) to copy 1-or-more of these vowels with macrons (little lines over the vowels), into the typing-blank:     āēīōūȳ ĀĒĪŌŪȲ
Alternatively, type these macron-vowels by using the CTRL key (and add Shift, for capitalization).
