    Default Re: Accented Letters in a Xara Document

    ...but I missed looking at the Info button top-right that separately allows the copy to Clipboard for the Unicode or HTML Code.

    Brill.

    I just created a naff Xara Widget:
    Code:
    <XaraWidget>
    <WidgetName>copychar.cc</WidgetName>
    <CreateURL>https://copychar.cc</CreateURL>
    <BrowserWidth>1024</BrowserWidth>
    <BrowserHeight>800</BrowserHeight>
    <WidgetHelp>
    - Select any symbol or character.
    - It is copied to your Clipboard.
    - Click the Info button to see and copy Unicode or HTML Code as well.
    - Press the Cancel button.
    - Paste into your design.
    </WidgetHelp>
    </XaraWidget>
    Copy into a text editor and Save as CharCopy.xwr.
    Mine is in a Widget Folder and is accessed through the Local Designs gallery.

    XWR files are used to build Placeholders with body code; here you just close it.
    It saves the need for a separate browser window.

    Gary, if you're not using a Unicode font they might not be there to show.
    That said, i have rechecked and the shortcuts work in MS Word but not Xara!

    ! ! you can press Ctrl+Z to undo any autocorrection
    !! inverted exclamation mark
    "" “” smart double quotes
    '' ‘’ smart single quotes
    (&) section
    (.) middle dot
    (/)
    (aa)
    (ae) ligature
    (c)
    (co) ℅
    (d) degree
    (e) €
    (mu)
    (oe)
    (pc) pilcrow
    (r)
    (ss)
    (tm) ™
    +-
    --- — em dash
    ... … ellipsis
    1. 1.
    1/2
    1/4
    1/8 ⅛

    Gary, just checked they are all there in Arial so Xara must filter them away:

    • Shift+Alt+Ctrl+& is picked up by Xara as Shift+Alt+Ctrl+7, which is assigned to Disable Live Share. To re-enable, use Shift+Alt+Ctrl+6.
    • Shift+Alt+Ctrl+! (Shift+Alt+Ctrl+1) & Shift+Ctrl+& are both unassigned.
    • Shift+Ctrl+A is Paste Attributes.
    • Shift+Ctrl+O is Open the Options Dialog.

    Thank you for advising, I should have checked these.

    Autocorrection guidance: https://helpandsupport.xara.com/xara...orrection.html.
    This updates or creates a plain text file. Mine is autocorrect_en_GB.txt in %localappsdata%/Xara/(product)/<version), or thereabouts.
