How do I assign a shortcut key to insert a special character?
Many shortcut keys are already assigned to insert many special characters by default. To see which keys are assigned, go to Insert Special Characters.
- Any character can be assigned to your favorite shortcut key using a macro. For example, if you would like to insert ä with a shortcut key, write a macro:
and save as a .jsee file, for example,
- Go to Macros | Select…, and choose the .jsee file. Under Macros, run this macro to test the script.
- To assign a shortcut key to this macro, go to Tools | Properties for All Configurations and open the Keyboard. Select My Macros from the Category drop-down list, select the .jsee file you just saved, and assign your favorite key to the macro.
