|AllChars provides a quick, easy-to-remember way of creating accents like é Ü ç î æ and special characters like ƒ ² ‰ © £ ± ß ° 1/2 ¿ « » ™ „ in most Windows programs.
AllChars emulates the *nix Compose key on Windows.
AllChars v3.5 upwards supports macros: type a (short) name and AllChars will replace it with a (long) text.
Here's how it works. Type , (but don't hold it down). Then AllChars will take the next TWO characters you type and substitute another in their place. For example: type (and release it !) followed by <`> and and you get an <è>. Use the SHIFT key for the accents on the capital letters. You can double-click on the icon in the systray (bottom right) in order to view the sequence you have to use to produce the accents.
The most important keys are...
|Ctrl + ` + letter = è, à, ...
Ctrl + ’+ letter = é
Ctrl + , + letter = ç
Ctrl + " + letter = ë, ï, ...
Ctrl + ^ + letter= ê, â, ...
