4.2
25 April 2007

A reference widget for special character key combinations.

Overview

CharacterPal is a widget that helps you remember how to type special character. Just put your mouse over a character, and the key combo appears at the bottom. Now you don't have to try to memorize what Option + Shift + K does!

Special Special Characters- Some characters on CharacterPal are a lighter red. These characters depend on the next keystroke. For example Option + e will produce a highlighted «. Now press an 'a', for example, and an 'a' with an accent over it is produced.

Thank you for this very useful widget! This is exactly the sort of thing that should be a widget. Making the explanation of what to type IN WORDS and not symbols that fail to correspond with what is physically there on the keyboard is, well, what should have always been with other similar pieces of software (note a correct use of 'software' - yes you - the irritating readers that use it as a singular noun) - thanks for getting it right. Finally, thanks for making it free. I've had it with a certain other well-known product that has price-gouged me for the last time. One request is to widen the font selection, but you brilliant people would know that already.

nice job. I use this daily, the only part I have a problem with is the copy and paste. When I drag the character, it just copies the keyboard combo. I also would like to see a way of just using the character without HTML codes. Other then that, I love it.

this is an awesome widget thanks. except i always forget how to do like eL and all of those with normal letters and accents. those should be included (i know it shows you how to do it in html but that is useless if you are in pages or something)

Sweet stuff, good size and handy reference. There is something that would enhance its handiness further though; the feedback when hovering over a character is great, but consider copying over the code string to the clipboard when the character is clicked on. (When in keyboard mode, copy the character itself. When in html mode, copy one of the two code strings - an option on the back of the widget could determine which.) There's a some html codes missing, too.
