    One of the great strengths of EmEditor is clearly in its Unicode support but as far as I can see there is no easy way to insert Unicode characters unless one knows the appropriate code.

    It would be very useful to have some means to allow non-standard characters to be inserted into documents, either directly within the core application or via a plug-in. The sort of thing I envisage is similar to the Mac OS X special characters palette or the way this is implemented in EditPad Pro. The latter approach has the benefit that the dialog is non-modal.

    It is probably easy to write a plug-in to insert a unicode character. I might write that plug-in. For now, you can use Character Map included in Windows to insert a character. Thanks!

    Thanks.

    I do use charmap.exe for this currently but it would be nice to be able to just click a character to add rather than having to go via the clipboard.

    Having stumbled across this old thread I thought I would add that for a while now I’ve been using PopChar from Ergonis Software.

    It’s expensive for what it does but it does do it well and is much better than CharMap.

    I checked out PopChar, and it looks very good!

    Are you now satisfied with using EmEditor with PopChar, or are you still looking for a Unicode insert plug-in? :-)

    I’m pretty happy with PopChar and I even use it on OS X which already has a really good character palette.

    As I use EmEditor for more and more of my general writing under Windows what I would really love to have would be a good inline spell-checker to get away from modal dialogs that get in the way.
