September 4th, 2008
  • Version 2.0 of Easy Unicode Paster is released.
  • The structure of the program has been changed. The Config.ini file is now separate from the character sets used.
  • Includes over 100 different character sets.
  • Access all the character sets from within Easy Unicode Paster.
  • Utilizes a table of "buttons" for better performance and a cleaner look.
  • Program will automatically change the layout of the table according to how much space is available. It makes it so that you only have to scroll vertically when there is not enough room to display all the items.
  • Has support for pasting multiple characters with one button. See the "Example Character Set.ini" file in the "Character Sets" folder for details.
  • The items on the toolbar and the context menu have been tweaked. Gone is the option to make EUP not topmost because this was not a very useful option in practice.


With this release, I firmly believe that Easy Unicode Paster is one of the best and easiest to use unicode character maps out there and can compete with products that charge for something similar. All the other character maps I have tried have failed in their ease of use or how the program operates. Easy Unicode Paster pastes unicode characters in whatever document you are working with using just 1 click for one character.

freewareworld team is a GREAT site.. i wonder what google has detected?

i've posted about many freeware discoveries on the site, and about the site itself here: http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=6737.0

one of the nicest things about freeware world team site is that they actively go out and find new freeware programs even if the author has never created a pad file, etc., so they often find things other sites dont.

I wonder if they got hacked. I could always fire up a virtual machine and check it out.

Congratulations with a fine program, Eric. Do you remember what button- font and font SIZE you used for Easy Unicode Paster version 1.2, please? My old eyes liked that size a lot better than the various font with smaller font sizes you have been using for later versions. But I have not been able to duplicate it. In fact I still use version 1.2 because of this. ;-) Oh yes and because my copy of version 1.4 CardsMusic refuses to be topmost from first popup! It will always start behind any active window, and only when I click it and press Topmost will this feature work. Anything I can do to repair?

Hello Curt, the original font for 1.2 is Microsoft Sans Serif in Regular style with a size of 22. For being topmost from first popup, I think 1.2 could be missing a bring to forward command in the code but I use 2.x now which should work on first popup.

I have not been able to settle with version 2; it is way too big for me. I like version 1.2 because of the cute size combined with large text buttons, and version 1.4 because it will start minimized. But now I need version 1.5, I guess  ;D

I cannot make 1.4 display the text in the same way (size) 1.2 does:

1.2:)

Did I type it wrong: buttonFont=Microsoft Sans Serif, 22pt:tellme:

Hello Curt,

I just tried both versions 1.2 and 1.4 out on my computer and the fonts of the buttons can be resized on both to the Microsoft Sans Serif, 22 point font. I've attached my working copy of 1.4 to this post, see if the font size works out for you.

As for the size of version 2, you can shrink it down to the size of version 1.4 if you delete all the other character sets you don't use in the Character Sets directory.

Hmm... it seems the problem must be a quite different one, most likely something locale, because whatever font size I am typing, the outcome is always one and the same. Well, what the heck; in a couple of weeks my new computer will be up and running, and the situation will be totally different. Just forget about this little problem of mine; it really is an unimportant detail. I just wish I understood the matter!
