Yevgeny Makarov (jenkm) added a comment to T62309: Make enum menus nicer.

On all your screenshots shows native macOS pop-up menu, and it works well and is familiar to users. Although pull-down menu are also used depending on the context.

Yevgeny Makarov (jenkm) reopened T62456: macOS ALT/OPTION + E bug as "Open".

It probably also depends on your system language, not just the keyboard layout.
If you have "English (US)" language, the keyboard will not present "dead key" behavior, because they are not used in english.

It seems you need to have some international keyboard, there are no settings in System Preferences, it depends on keyboard layout.

Yevgeny Makarov (jenkm) added a comment to T62456: macOS ALT/OPTION + E bug.

This function works in this way: for example, you press Option-E and then immediately A, so "a" will be converted in the "á".
In other applications, if after Option-E you click somewhere it reset this function.
Blender "remembers" this, you can perform some action after Option-E and then when you try to enter the symbol it will convert.
