Using Letters that are not on a Keyboard

Recommended Posts

With these codes you must hold ALT then type the number in on the far right numbers (the NUM pad) on your keyboard NOT with the numbers above the letters I'm typing with! You will need Num lock on.

I'm not sure why you posted that here...

This belongs more in the overflow section I think as this has nothing to do with Paint.NET

The codes won't work with every font...

This is why we all have "Character Map" on the Microsoft operating systems

Useful information. (Information I already knew about, but I'm sure it's helpful to others :))

I would also recommend instructing people about the wonder of

Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Character Map

...

But to be honest, this has little to do with Paint.NET, as ALT codes will work in just about any program that accepts text. Because of that, I'd definitely say this belongs in Overflow.

Could a mod move this to Overflow please?

Well I found it extreemly useful. I often write in Welsh and French and have to use microsoft word to get the odd characters I need. It'll be fun to try them out in the forums perhaps.

well its not a tutorial...and thier called alt codes you can easily find them by searching on google. pretty much its just a list on what code equals what symbol. and o i dont think youve said them all...ive found that they go up pretty high and youve forgot to say that num lock needs to be on and the far right numbers is the "num pad" also if you use a laptop you need to use the "fn" key to activate numlock...hope this helps add a bit more detail...welcome to the forums...

Using the character map would be easier than searching through that list, in all honesty.

"So, I want a © symbol, ok, lets look through this list looking for the © symbol...."

As for the character map, you'd also be able just to have it placed in the document rather you then having to memorize a code thing. I don't find it useful, though others probably will.

EDIT: And what's Alt + 256?

If you want to have something of this, just press ALT and type the number.

For Example:

▓ = ALT+178

thats really easy :D

I see you got all ASCII chracters in your list, grate!
