I need to use Unicode characters from time to time, i learned, that entering those without using Character Map, can be done by holding down [Ctrl]+[Shift]+<Hexnumber>
The problem is, that when i need U+30F3, i can't enter it, because i can't enter the 0, all i get is the U+03F3 character in the end.
This however works SOMETIMES, but not in many programes.
Is there maybe an alternative way of entering Unicode Symbols other than the [Ctrl]#[Shift] trick?
There's advice on getting special characters in a wiki page at this site.
The keyboard route seems best for CJK, although I suspect you'd have to edit the driver to use your Windows keys to substitute for the missing keys if you don't have an East Asian keyboard. Don't forget that you can install more than one keyboard driver, and put an indicator on the panel to show which is current and on which you can click to switch between them.
