# French characters

I am writing my PhD thesis but I have a problem in typing French characters: like "à" "é" "ç" etc. In the main page I have to use these two packages:

\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}


I tried to change them by using others like

\usepackage[applemac]{inputenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[ansinew]{inputenc}


• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – yo' Feb 5 '15 at 15:50
