I really like Scrivener. I’ve just started using it for translation projects that involve multiple languages, and it’s great to be able to keep all of my work open at once.
Here’s the problem: I need to transliterate documents from Central Asian languages into Latin characters, and that involves using special characters like “ḥ” and “ö”. Usually, in Microsoft Word, I used custom keyboard shortcuts that inserted combining diacritical marks (umlauts, macrons, dots, etc.). For example, my umlaut was CTRL+SHIFT+’, while my macron was CTRL+SHIFT±.
I can’t do this in Scrivener, as far as I can tell, and I really miss the functionality. I could just keep opening the character map, but that is very slow.
My question: Is there any way to make a macro for special characters in Scrivener such as I have described above?
Thank you very much!
