Inserting Unicode characters or special symbols by means of the keyboard is usually complicated. To simplify this, Transit NXT provides you with a character map to insert any symbol or character into your translation.
To insert a Unicode character, place the cursor at the position where you want to insert the desired character and select Edit | Text | Character map as shown in the screenshot below:
You can choose a character from various character groups by selecting the appropriate one from the drop-down list in the Character map window.
If you need to frequently insert Unicode characters, you may want to dock the Character map window to the user interface. To do so, click on the title bar of the Character map window and start dragging it to the desired position. Then, drag the window to one of the positions indicated by the arrows and blue shading as shown in the screenshot below and then release the left mouse button.
This will dock the Character map window to the Transit NXT user interface so you do not have to open it every time when you need to insert a Unicode character or symbol.
I hope you find this feature offered by Transit NXT useful. Please do not hesitate to leave your comments or ask for specific short cuts.
