I need to put somebody's name in a credit list and I need a "tilda" (tilde?) ... that wavey thing that goes over an "n" in many Spanish names. Her name is Rosa Pena (with the tilde over the n). I'm using a helvitica font. How should I do this? Just make a spline track and draw it?

In Graffitty 5.3, when I type the tilde first and then the n, the tilde will appear on top of the n. It even works on this forum: ñ

I ended up just copying the text from a word document buecause the tilde was in the word document. Red to it as is.

In many fonts and on a western/european keyboard, you can use "shift+option+n". I just had a Pena super to create in Boris Title 3d. It didnt add the n the way Theo described, but I just put it on a line above it and adjusted baseline and kern to line up.

I found my solution here:
