Hi all,

do you know if there is a shortcut to curly apostrophe and quotes in Idiom Worldserver without copying and pasting from the Character Map?

Thanks in advance!

I use a little script I wrote:
http://wikisend.com/download/728066/idiomhotkeys_v4.zip

The readme file says:

==

Quick keyboard shortcuts for users of Idiom Desktop who need to type certain characters.

Shift+Ctrl+Space = non-breaking space (e.g. between digits and SI symbols, "5 cm")
Alt+Ctrl+fullstop = ellipsis (...)
Ctrl+NumMinus = en-dash, and also Ctrl+hyphen = en-dash

Ctrl+( = single opening quote
Ctrl+) = single closing quote (or curly apostrophe)
Ctrl+Shift+( = double opening quote
Ctrl+Shift+) = double closing quote

The non-breaking space does not work in a browser text field.

To exit the program or to disable the shortcuts, click the round blue icon in the system tray.

==

There is no virus -- but if you don't believe me, download an install AutoIt and run the "au3" file instead of the "exe" file.

Let me know of this works for you. I also use this script in MS Word, but it only works in MS Word if you have smart cut/paste disabled. Note: the script uses your clipboard.

Samuel
