Inserting Special Characters and Smileys

Inserting Special Characters

When entering content, it is often necessary to insert characters that are not a part of the standard keyboard. This is especially useful during the creation of documents in foreign languages. Another area where special characters are often needed is writing mathematical expressions.

To insert a special character into your document, press the  button on the toolbar. The Select Special Character dialog window that will open allows you to choose a symbol from a set containing Latin letters, numbers (including fractions), currency symbols, punctuation, arrows, and mathematical operators.

Find a character that you need in the set and select it with your mouse. The dialog window will close automatically and the special character will appear in the editing area in the cursors location.

 
Inserting Smileys

No online editor and no online environment would be complete without emoticons (also called smileys). The Editor's emoticon collection is a set of icons representing a user's mood or other frequently expressed concepts.

To insert a smiley into your document, press the  button on the toolbar. The Select Smiley dialog window that will open allows you to choose an appropriate icon from a set of graphical mood representations.

Find a smiley that suits your mood and select it with your mouse. The dialog window will close automatically and the smiley will appear in the editing area in the cursors location.
