This question already has an answer here:

This is the letter I'm trying to reproduce: ǘ

There's an umlaut and, on top, an acute accent. I can do one or the other but not both.

Any suggestion?

    Combining accents \'{\"{u}} works for me... (pdftex with with fontenc). – campa Mar 29 at 9:32
  • @campa You have to add option T1, because in many other options it doesn't work. – user156344 Mar 29 at 9:40
  • @JouleV Ups... I thought I wrote that... Thanks for the catch. – campa Mar 29 at 9:58
  • @campa Now you can write an answer ;) – user156344 Mar 29 at 9:59

  • Thank you. Not a problem down the line if it's not typeset, with brackets and all, as other accents are? – CyanideBaby Mar 29 at 9:26
  • And actually, it doesn't work for me. The letter simply disappears. Btw, I'm using /book. – CyanideBaby Mar 29 at 9:28
  • @nofare Do you have an up-to-date TeX distribution? Do you use Xe/LuaLaTeX as the compiler? – user156344 Mar 29 at 9:28
  • What doesn't work? This simple MWE or when you embed it into you larger document with all sorts of packages/options loaded? – sheß Mar 29 at 9:29
  • Sorry should have been clearer: it doesn't work once embedded in a much larger document. – CyanideBaby Mar 29 at 9:52
