Yet before Windows came, as a DOS user you maybe remember shortcuts like Alt+(numpad064) you could type anywhere to insert
@ (character #64).
I'm seeking for a Windows tool which can
- Convert typed hexadecimal (or decimal) number to appropriate Unicode character
Microsoft Word already has sort of this functionality: you type
0A88, press Alt+X and
0A88gets replaced by
- Type Unicode character selected in pop-up window right into text.
Both features should work regardless of active application, like universal tool sitting on the background.
I already know and use fantastic BabelMap character map but this one fulfills only requirement #2 (and only partially). In many cases I would also need a tool offering feature #1 – while #2 is good-to-have in the same tool, but not mandatory (BabelMap can still be of use).
