I'll say it confused me too, even though I need those modified
characters and am used to deadkeys.

Apart from making the character modifier palette buttons more distinct
(maybe a different button color?) what might have unconfuzzled me
would have been a system notification instructing me to type one more
character, or a space; the thin yellow bar across the top. There's
probably better ideas out there though.
