Is there a way to add Quick Insert entries for all files types without going file by file? There are some characters I need for ALL projects in ALL file types.

Not possible... Jan 5, 2014

... and this is deliberately so because not all filetypes allow all special characters. However, if you feel you have something that you are using that is relevant to every filetype in Studio (be careful with *ML files) then maybe try using AutoHotKey instead? There’s an article or two on this blog that might be interesting:

Custom QuickInsert created but keyboard shortcut doesn't work Jan 31, 2014

I created a QuickInsert for a smart apostrophe ’ in the hope that a one-off keyboard shortcut would be less laborious than Alt+0146 every time - it shows the shortcut as Ctrl+Shift+0 when I hover over the new button, but nothing happens when I select that combination. Should I be doing something more?
Also, can you redefine this keyboard combination, which seems to be allocated automatically?
