inserting unicode characters

Posted 11-01-2011 at 06:17 AM by neonsignal

The method for inserting unicode characters depends on the application.

For GTK based applications, a unicode character can be inserted by holding down ctrl-shift, typing 'u' followed by the hex code, and then releasing the ctrl-shift.

In vi, in insert mode, ctrl-v can be used, followed by 'u' and the hex code.

I do not know of a method for Qt based applications.

Of course, for entering significant amounts of non-ascii text, it can be useful to set up a keyboard map with the most used characters.
