old bookseller trick = allchars for special characters

Someone asked me how to easily type ñ or ü as one catalogues books. Personally I run the freeware Allchars on each and every computer I own. A simple tiny utility program that runs in the background. It’s ridiculously easy – it breaks down special characters into easily remembered key combinations. And since the 1st key is always ctrl you only have to remember two and they are usually visually close to what you want to create.

Hence:
ñ = ctrl + ~ + n
ü = ctrl + ” + u
ø = ctrl + / + o
å = ctrl + o + a
ß = ctrl + s + s
œ = ctrl + o + e
æ = ctrl + a + e
¢ = ctrl + / + c
ƒ = ctrl + f + f
¥ = ctrl + – + Y
£ = ctrl + – + L
€ = ctrl + = + e
© = ctrl + o + c
® = ctrl + o + r

and so on . . . hey it’s free . . . stop complaining go download it.
