    It really depends on your keyboard, Language and other applications' settings.

    That diacritics list is certainly helpful, Acorn! Thank you!

    Thanks Acorn, that will come in handy as I often type in French and had to look up some the accented letters.

    I removed my previous post and those relating to it.

    Well done Acorn. Very useful.

    Hello Acorn,

    I do think your approach is useful for most people. If there is need for more shortcuts, there is Wincompose (https://github.com/samhocevar/wincompose) that gives the possibility of custom shortcuts (and has a humongous set of default shortcuts). Personally, I find that its default shortcuts are a bit too much. However, the program can be totally customized by removing the check marks in Options, Composing, Sequences, and defining your own user-defined sequences in the .XCompose text file. The result can be very similar to AllChars which was a much used utility in older versions of Windows.

    lex, thank you for the suggestion.

    I actually prefer Character Map UWP that is a better replacement for the usual CharMap.
    That too is overwhelming.

    My best fall-back is an AutoHotKey script, CAPshift.ahk, which you can totally customise to your needs.

    The MS Virtual (Touch) Keyboard for W11 seemingly has better diacritics.

    Have a look at copychar.cc ... you click on a character and it adds it to the clipboard for pasting. Not all characters work with Xara, but I find it very useful for a lot of items especially the fractions, in a number of programs.

    Yes, I remember you plugging it before.

    What I liked about it is the top line remembers which ones you copied and you can grab these again.
