  1. � REPLACEMENT CHARACTER when using Alt-??? for accented characters in Microsoft applications


    This character �(REPLACEMENT CHARACTER) appears when I try to use 3 digit alt codes such as Alt-130 for é in Microsoft applications, e.g. word but not in Microsoft Edge, for example.


    Is there a simple registry adjustment to restore the use of these Alt codes from the ASCII set ?

    Thanks Malcolm

    Accented characters on E70

    You can enter accented characters by using the Chr key in combination with the letter you want to put an accent on. By tapping the letter a few times you can cycle through the different available accents.

    Although this is OK for the characters at the righthand part of the keyboard, I think it is rather difficult for the characters at the lefthand side of the keyboard.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Jan-Jaap

    Accented characters on E70

    Does anyone know if there's an easy way to input accented characters (like é en ä) on the E70 with the phone folded open? I would have expected that switching to Dutch would change the input mode such that pressing for instance
    e and ' consecutively would give an é, but no such luck. Right now, the only way of entering accented characters that I know of using the full keyboard is holding the control key while pressing the ascii code of the desired character, which is
    inconvenient even for the few characters for which I know the ascii code by heart. Alternatively, one can close the full keyboard and use the numerical keypad to cycle through the available characters, but constantly switching between the full keyboard and
    the numerical keyboard is'n really my idea of convenient text input. Thanks, René (that would be Ren<CTRL><233> � REPLACEMENT CHARACTER when using Alt-??? for accented characters in Microsoft applications :) )

    However, the On-screen keyboard will provide the options that are similar to a physical keyboard. For more information on the character options that are available, I would suggest you to refer to
