View Full Version : character map ????
October 4th 2003, 06:55 PM
I am using chaacter map to import stuff into a document. Is there a way to change the default settings? When I import them it makes the font size 13.5 and puts a hard return afterwards, and on top of that it changes things from double spaced, right justified to single spaced unjustified. Is there a way to import it without messing up the formatting?

character map? That is the small utility for finding individual characters isn't it?

yup, I need use a lot when writing my papers as I often need strange characters, e.g. for text cricial sigla, non-standard charachters like the paragraph dudad § or others.
Okay when I cut and paste from there into Word
§ will be in 13.5 font, and not 12 point as everything else.

You could just insert character, since that keeps font et al.

Character map has no font size setting... the easiest thing would be to simply learn the keyboard shortcuts.
Select the character you want, and if there's a "Keystroke: ..." thing in the right corner, you can use that to type your character. It needs to be done using the keypad(the keys to the right of your arrows), not the numbers at the top.
For example, pressing Alt and 0220 will produce Ü.

I use the autocorrect feature for most of those for example //u"e// would equal ü. The problem is when I use multiple fonts for example here is the font map for duhram ugaritic adn durham ugaritic transliteration. It is generally easier to construct these using font map than rememebring what the differnt characters are for the each cuneiform (it becomes nearly impossible if I were to try it with Akkadian which has hundreds if not thousands of symbols.
