On Windows, if you have a number pad on your keyboard, you can enter all kinds symbols via Alt + numpad code. However, if you have a laptop that does not include a number pad and has no NumLock button, you can’t do this.
Microsoft, however, provides a workaround: support.office.com/en-us/articl … 0407d13c35
Using that approach, in Word, I can enter an æ character from my laptop that has no way using the Alt+code approach.
However, Scrivener doesn’t seem to do that. That would be a really helpful feature. For either the current version or version 3.
