Alternative method for obtaining special characters Oct 9, 2002

There is another trick, not very well known, for obtaining some special characters in Word.

Note, the ALT+3 number or ALT+4 numbers method will work in any Windows program, while the following technique can be used only in Word.
If you need one of the characters in another program, you can produce it in Word and then copy and paste it where you need it.
It can be used in any keyboard. I use it, most of times, with my UK keyboard to type the Italian characters with an accent.

As first example, I describe how to obtain a character with the grave accent:

1. Press the CTRL key
2. Keep it pressed while pressing the key ´
3. Now release both keys and just press the desired vowel (any lower or upper case)
That's all. No numeric codes. Only 3 keys to press.

Two first, to prompt the special combo, and then simply the desired key. It will come out with the chosen CTRL+attribute.

I hope it is very clear, try it now!


A similar method can be used for other sets of characters:

Press CTRL + ´ and [a,e,i,o,u] to get [á é etc...]
Press CTRL + / and [o,O] to get [ø,Ø]
Press CTRL + ~ and [n,N] to get [ñ,Ñ]
Press CTRL + : and [a,o,etc...] to get [ä,ö,etc...]
Press CTRL + , and [c,C] to get [ç,Ç]
Press CTRL + ^ and [a,e,etc...] to get [â,ê,etc...]


While the list of characters obtainable with this method is not as complete as the numeric list, it has the advantage of not requiring to remember or to have a long list of numeric codes at hand.

Gianfranco

Fully agree with Gianfranco Oct 9, 2002

I discovered this \"technique\" some time ago, quite by accident.

The good thing is that most of the diacriticals are fairly intuitive on the keyboard (press CTRL and the keyboard character you _think_ looks like the diacritical you need.

The only thing - for capital letters you also need to press CTRL + \"sign\" and then SHIFT with the letter.



For \"signs\" like :, ^, > you must press CTRL+SHIFT and then the letter.



But this was obvious, isn\'t it?



For other signs (paragraph, copyright, trademark etc.), if you use them often, take the time and program your own keyboard shortcuts.



I use ALT+s for §

ALT+c for copyright and so on.



You assign the shortcuts from the Insert - Symbol menu.

RemoteKeys Oct 9, 2002

My geriatric brain is unable to remember all those numbers so I have programmed it (and the HTML codes as well) into the application RemoteKeys.



You will find RemoteKeys and lots of other goodies on http://www.freewarenetz.de

We in Sweden are lucky Oct 9, 2002

Thanks Gianfranco but we don\'t have to use your method.

Our keyboards already have the signs on top of the vowels except the slavic inverted ^.

The cédille in French is not there though but:



´`~(ñ)^.



For someone ordering my table in Word, the applicable codes could be distilled from it, so that it becomes practical.



Personally, I use the 3 digit one since 15 years.

Why so complicated? Oct 9, 2002

Word is a very good and very adaptable tool.

You can programm it to print all characters you need by only pressing two keys together (ALT GR +character). So for example in Polish to get an \"a\" with \"ogonek\" you will only need to press ALT GR+a (or, if you wish it works even with ALT+a).

What you need is to go to \"paste\" (or similar, it is a menu, which allows you to put in a graphics, manual page and objects and so on - as I have only the german Word, I do not know the right english names for menus) and select \"Symbol\". There you need to choos \"usual text\" or \"normal text\" (it is the first position in the long list of availlable fonts). Then select each character you need to define a keybord shortcut for and press \"keyboard shortcut\". Then define your own shortcut (ie. \"ALT+o\" for gettin an \"ó\" amd so on). You can define as much shortcuts as much you need. After that you will never need to remember their ANSI-Codes (those myterious codes given by Mats). Thats all - and it works, I´m using this method since several years.



This is a very simple method, you do not need three keys as in Gianfranco´s method, and it allows you to set the shortcuts in a most convenient way.

Because one writes too many eMails and ProZ.com Forum contributions Oct 10, 2002

You\'re right Jerzy but:



I use your method in Word but less and less because eMails and \'Notes\' do not play ball so I\'ve got used to using the 3 digits.



I disabled Word as an Outlook editor due to a number of complications.



This very forum does not accomodate your method either.



Otherwise AltGr is a good tip. I\'ll use it.

Thanks!

For best results, use \'standard\' application Character Map (Charmap.exe). Much easier

For longer texts I change the keyboard setting... Oct 11, 2002

I use Mats\' and Gianfranco\'s methods when I only need to type a few \"foreign\" characters, but when translating longer texts I do prefer to change the keyboard setting so that this corresponds with the target language.



It only takes a minute to configure this, and afterwards you can switch between the settings using a simple key combination. Here\'s a short instruction - just in case somebody does not know how to proceed:



- Klick on the \"keyboard\" icon in the control panel

- Select \"language\", then \"add (a language)\"

- Choose the language you need (e.g. German if you have an \"English\" keyboard) and press \"OK\" - when selecting an exotic language I think you might be asked to insert the programme CD

- Select a keyboard combination to be used for switching between the keyboard settings

- Press \"OK\" and you\'re done!



Have a nice week-end, everyone



Susanne



PS: I hope that the English system terms which I have used are correct - in German it would be \"Systemsteuerung, Tastatur, Sprache, Hinzufügen, Sprachumschaltung\" etc.
