Inserting Special Characters
|Contents | Search | Support | Jarte Home
Insert Special Character displays Jarte's special characters keyboard which provides a wider choice of characters than is available on a physical keyboard.
Tip: If there are particular special characters that you frequently insert into documents then you may find it more efficient to use the associated keyboard key sequences for those characters. The easy to remember key sequences are great for entering accented characters, math symbols, currency symbols, and much more.
Using the Special Characters Keyboard
Simply click the desired character in the Special Characters Keyboard to insert it into the current document. You can also copy a character to the Windows clipboard by right clicking the character and selecting Copy from the pop-up menu.
The special characters keyboard can be navigated from your physical keyboard by using the up, down, left, and right arrow keys. Pressing the Enter key will insert the selected character.
The font selector box allows you to choose the font of the character to be inserted. The default font is the font at the current document's text cursor. However, it is often useful to switch to a symbolic font such as WingDings or WebDings when you want to insert a special symbol. You can even designate commonly used fonts as favorites. Favorite and recently used fonts are shown in blue at the top of the fonts list for quick access. Favorite fonts are designated with a green check mark.
