Hello,

Is there any way to copy a single character from the source text?

I often translate texts which contain lots of "strange" characters such as ★ or ■ or ♪. It is really annoying to have to select those symbols in the source, ctrl-c and then click on the target and ctrl-v every single time they appear.

I have tried to add them to terminology but Wordfast Pro does not seem to recognize one-character entries. I also hopefully tried to do it with ctrl+tab but unfortunately this function SKIPS those characters.

Any help?

In Classic, you could use Alt+F12, which is faster than the Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V sequence. But you appear to be using Pro...
