Type Fonts have foreign characters. The font you are currently
using can be viewed with this character map to determine if
the font is complete with foreign characters and if so, which
keystroke is associated with this character. This is a little
pain in the rear to use but beats the alternative of pressing
all the keys to see if the character you want even exists let
alone the keystroke it's associated with.
Use Dingbats and foreign characters;
Suggest you add a
shortcut on you Desktop Toolbar and possibly create a
additional new Toolbar just for accessories or if you have
room add to the main toolbar for easy access rather than going
through the Task bar selection: Start, Programs, Accessories,
System Tools, Character Map. Click
here for instructions to add to Desktop Toolbar.
|Select, Copy and Paste.|
By Selecting, and
copying here will put the character on the clipboard.
Now go to your document and place the cursor where you want to
paste the character and then paste. This may not work
perfectly all the time but normally the keystroke is pasted.
In your document. Select whatever is pasted, and then select
the font it comes from like "ZapfDingbats BT" as in
this case and enter. Should change to the wanted dingbat. Alternative:
Remember the font name and the keystroke associated with the
dingbat, go to your document,
set cursor where you want the dingbat, select font and then the
keystroke associated with the dingbat. Need same dingbat
on the document. Suggest copying the dingbat on your document and pasting where
you want it to save some time. Click
