Hi All,

I can't found anywhere how to write a capital è, à, ù, ò in trados studio 2009.

I've a laptop without numeric keypad so I cannot use alt shortcuts.

Does anyone know how to do it?

Thanks

After learning to use it, you could type in almost every special symbol directly on keyboard.

Also, another suggestion is to install a shortcut of the program

C:\Windows\System32\charmap.exe

on start menu. Every time you need a special character, you could select it on charmap.

But, I think that the first solution get easier results.

HTH

Not Studio related? Nov 11, 2012

I don't quite understand the problem. Your keyboard should be set to the language you write in and then Studio, like any other program, will enter the right letter.

Certain symbols are more of a problem, when you do need to enter an alt shortcut, but capital letters with accents should be available on your keyboard.

Shift+F3 will of course provide a workaround, but is that what you'd use, say, in Word, to get a capital letter with an accent?

In word I use a shortcut which I created by myself following the options of Word, but I'm not able to find the same path to do it also in Studio.

And also in Word I could choose to insert a symbol, but I can't find the right option to insert it in Studio.

But thanks anyway, I will use shift+f3.

Thanks

Tamara
