Hello,

I am trying to figure out how to input this French character "œ" in WF pro (2.4).
I tried using shortcut "ctrl + shift + &, then o", a solution I found online, but it returns an "ô", i.e. o with accent circonflexe, "^" not a ligature.

Any hints appreciated... I'm stuck with copy-pasting from the internet for now

Try "Alt+0156" Dec 17, 2010

I use codes on the number pad for this sort of thing. It works in my version of WF Pro.

Hope this helps,
Alison

I should've mentioned... Dec 17, 2010

I'm on a netbook and these manips don't work because there is no numpad. I've tried, but to no avail.

Thanks anyways

Microsoft Office Spellchek Dec 17, 2010

I'm sorry, my English is very bad...
Si tu as Word sur ton Netbbok et que tu configures de sorte que la correction orthographique soit effectuée par Word (Windows->systeme options->Text Editors->Spelling->Microsoft Office Spellchek), le oe sera automatiquement corrigé en œ.
Je viens d'essayer, en tout cas ici ça marche.
J'espère que ça peut t'aider.

Here it works for me. I hold Ctrt+Shift, then press &, remove my fingers from the keyboard, and press o at once.

Please note that if you have 2.4, there are at least two missing builds. So please make sure you download and install the latest version of Wordfast Professional available at:
http://www.wordfast.com/store_download.html

If this persists, you can go to Edit menu > Preferences > Keys, "Remove Binding" of the current shortcut and add it again; Apply.


I hope this helps.
