Question Kubuntu 19.04: Kate: Unicode hotkey not working

I'm using the standard Ctrl-Shift-U combination, but on pressing Enter after entering, for instance, 00E9 (e, sharp accent), all I get is a linefeed to the next line in the editing window.

I have to keep a less-sophisticated editor like Pluma or Mousepad open to get the special character I want to use.

I consider having to do this a waste of resources (the cutting and pasting gets monotonous), and I'm honestly surprised the "Kate team" hasn't noticed this bug exists.

Is there anything I can do do remedy this situation? Or put more directly, make Kate add these Unicode characters according to an accepted code scheme without using another app?

did you try to check the solution on the net? For example try the forum of kubuntu.

The team probably didn't expect anyone to be using Ctrl-Shift-U. I last used that in MSDOS and it doesn't work in my Linux. If you were using the US International keydrives, AltGR would give , but setting up a compose key and using Comp ' e is more versatile.


kate, special, unicode characters
