I once asked the same!topic/frescobaldi/QswzkvR-f7c and
now I can update the report a bit.

- It's not your fault: all other programs behave well and your
keyboard is properly configured. Only Frescobaldi shows the issue.
- Click the PDF music preview once, then click the text editing area
once, then try typing an accented character, it works once, then try
typing another one, it'll fail. In another words, it works first time
only after clicking in the edit area.
- Disabling the predictive auto-complete setting makes dead keys work.
You can still have auto-completing suggestions on demand, by pressing

My current approach is leaving auto-complete on for normal music
coding and comments in English: no accents. Then, for comments and
lyrics in Spanish I change to suggestions on demand and accents can be
typed normally.

The bug comes undoubtedly from a conflict between auto-complete
feature and dead keys. HTH,
