special characters

I am a german user and since my last update, I cant access a special characters list. In German: Sonderzeichen. But I need some of them, so I have to copy them out of another list… I know, that such a list was available before the last update.

The menu command here, Edit/Character Map... actually just provides a convenient shortcut to running the Windows tool directly. If for some reason that shortcut isn’t working, try running it from the Start menu (just type in “char” in the search field and it should pop up).
