18.104.22.168.1. Character entities
Insert custom character
Proceed as follows to insert a custom character:
- Place the cursor at the text position where the character shall be inserted.
- Click the "Insert custom character" button. A dialog pops up with a pick-list of all configured character entities.
- Click on the character to be inserted. This will close the dialog and the character will be inserted at the current cursor position.
The selected character will be inserted as a numeric character entity into the source, e.g. the copyright sign will be inserted as © (note: according to the unicode specification the code point 169 represents the copyright sign). An administrator can configure the list of custom characters that are presented in the pick-list. Please contact your administrator if a character shall be added to the pick-list.
For administrators: see Section 2.7.4, “Defining character entities” for information on how to configure character entities.
