If Your Macrons Stop Working

From time to time I find my macrons suddenly stop working.
This is almost certainly because I have accidentally hit the Windows key + space bar, which is the shortcut to switch the keyboard input method from the Māori keyboard that I usually use, back to the US keyboard.

2. Then click English (New Zealand) Maori keyboard.

To use Macrons, see my Tech Tip Type Using Macrons.
