Users who regularly have to write characters of different languages, be it in emails, spreadsheets or presentations, have usually a hard time adding those characters to their documents. This is definitely a thing of the past with the release of Easy Unicode Paster from Donation Coder Eric Wong. The project is target towards English speakers but can also be used by others (obviously) who need to access Unicode characters not supported in their keyboard setting.
The Open-Source application comes with over 100 different Unicode character sets from Arabic overCherokee, Latin to Yijing Hexagram Symbols (whatever that is). The interface is activated with the keyboard shortcut CTRL 1 which is giving access to all the different character maps that are supported by the software program.
Easy Unicode Paster remembers the last character set that has been used and presents its maps directly after bringing the application to the front. The program remembers the exact window size and position upon exit which means that it will show up in the exact same place during next program start.
The sizes of the fonts and buttons can also be changed directly in the software program by right-clicking in the interface. Another excellent quality Donation Coder release.
