    Do you know about the "Character Map" tool on Windows-based PCs?

    Do you know about the "Character Map" tool on Windows-based PCs? Do you use it often, or is it easier to just pick "Symbol" from the font selections and find the character you want that way?

    I do know it and I have used it a few times. If you are going to be using a lot of symbols from there, the map really comes in handy. I have never used the font selection to pick symbol, I would have to try it to know the difference even if from your description it sounds a little roundabout.

    Damned handy I say.

    The issue with working with Windows is it's language based, so if you want to use an 'E' with an accent or acute, it would be near impossible unless you could copy or paste one. The character map makes it possible to find lots of characterisations from other languages quickly and in the same font as you're using without taking all day about it.

    As far as the other symbols are concerned, it's good for them too. Much quicker than trying to find stuff by iterating through key strokes.

    I guess I use insert symbols, and go on from there.
