Right now, it's a pain to switch keyboard input to something else, enter in an accented character, and finally switching back to Asus keyboard.

Is there other ways to input symbols and characters not on the keyboard?

the part you're probably interested in is the "dead" keys

Oh, I didn't see that post.

Unfortunately, I can't do it, since it requires root. And I currently do not want to root.

The default "dead" keys do not require root. That is built into android and is default.
For example to get any letter with an Acute accent type ALT + e and then a letter. It will place the acute accent over it.
To get the Circumflex accent type ALT + i and then any letter and you will get it over the next letter that you type.

No root required.
