Writing special characters in the new interface

Jump to navigation Jump to search

I read Purodha's comment that you can't write special characters in the new translation editor interface, using the special character set below the edit window. I also can't find a way to enter special characters except by using the special keyboard software that I have on my personal computer. It seems that if I am not on that computer I would have to open another page on translatewiki.net, click Edit, choose a character from the set below the edit window, then copy it from there. Am I missing something?

Does ULS have input methods that support those special characters? I don't think this is a regression in TUX.

I don't know, what ULS is, but while I am typing these words, I have a list of clickable special characters and character sequences below the editing field:

Edittools ("")

Special characters: Á á É é Í í Ó ó Ú ú Ý ýÀ à È è Ì ì Ò ò Ù ù â Ê ê Î î Ô ô Û ûÄ ä Ë ë Ï ï Ö ö Ü ü Ÿ ÿÆ æ Ø ø Œ œ ßÅ å Ů ůà ã ɛ̃ Ĩ ĩ Ñ ñ Õ õ ɔ̃ Ũ ũÐ ð Þ þÇ ç Ģ ģ Ķ ķ Ļ ļ Ņ ņ Ŗ ŗ Ş ş Ţ ţĆ ć Ĺ ĺ Ń ń Ŕ ŕ Ś ś Ý ý Ź źČ č Ď ď Ľ ľ Ň ň Ř ř Š š Ť ť Ž žǍ ǎ Ě ě Ǐ ǐ Ǒ ǒ Ǔ ǔĀ ā Ē ē Ī ī Ō ō Ū ūǖ ǘ ǚ ǜĈ ĉ Ĝ ĝ Ĥ ĥ Ĵ ĵ Ŝ ŝ Ŵ ŵ Ŷ ŷĂ ă Ğ ğ Ŭ ŭĊ ċ Ė ė Ġ ġ İ ı Ż żĄ ą Ę ę Į į Ų ųŐ ő Ű űĐ đ Ħ ħ Ł ł Ŀ ŀƉ ɖ Ɛ ɛ Ƒ ƒ Ɣ ɣ Ŋ ŋ Ɔ ɔ Ʋ ʋ - Ə ə ־ ~ | ° ¹ ² ³ ¼ ½ ¾ $ ¥ £ × ± © ® «» ‹› „“ „” ‚‘ ¡ ¿ &nbsp; &nbsp; [[Category:]] #REDIRECT[[]] {{msg-mw||notext=1}} !!FUZZY!! ~~~~ <nowiki></nowiki> ڈ ڑ ٹ ټ څ ځ ډ ړ ږ ښ ڼ ؤ ي ې ۍ ئ {{{}}} {{}} {{subst:}} <noinclude></noinclude> <!--&nbsp;&nbsp;--> <br&nbsp;/>

We had that once with message editing, too. If I'm not mistaken, we got three new versions of editing meanwhile, with this most useful feature disabled, or missing. I would like to have it back, or something similar, and I am truly sad that I do not have the means and the capacity at the moment to add it to the new editor, if possible.

I for one would be happy already if I could easily switch to single message editing. I.e. solving bugzilla:46955 would do for me.

I tried clicking on the keyboard symbol which appears when you edit, which goes to the ULS (Universal Language Selector). But that only has the International Phonetic Alphabet, which I don't know how to use and the non-Latin scripts on it.

It is the additional character set under the edit window (displayed by Purodha above) which I use all the time to type in letters with the 4 accents on them; â ä á and `. So I also would consider the problem solved if bug 46955 were actioned.
