How do you select the key?

It would be great if you could do a readme file that would explain how to use the program.

BTW, what is that first selector box - the one with the various keys in it - for, and how does it work?

I'm only selecting characters that show correctly in EUP.  I have no idea what the others would be.  Probably well over 95% of characters just show as boxes, and I couldn't see any point in clicking on those.  Presumably they're only available in non-standard fonts.  But they are some useful characters available in standard fonts.

In the applications where it would be most useful for me, the only characters it actually seems to work on are the ones that are on the standard keyboard.  Characters not on the keyboard show as something other than they are supposed to, usually as a ?.  For characters on a standard keyboard, it seems much easier just to use the keyboard.

It does work in Word, but Word has its own equivalent function anyway.  But EUP might be a bit easier to use, especially if you were using a lot of special characters in a document.

It does work in Firefox, so it is useful if you should need to use a special character in a Forum such as this.  I can't recall ever having such a need, but EUP would work well for this purpose.

I've tried an extra step.  Open Easy Unicode Paster, then click on your original application.  Then clicking on a character in the Paster will paste something into your application, but it usually pastes a ? rather than the character you click.  Once in a blue moon it will actually paste the character you click on.

I'm sorry,  but clicking on a character does nothing other than highlight it in Easy Unicode Paster.  It does not send it to the application you are in.  I've tried it in several applications, and it does not work at all.  It is supposed to leave the focus on the application you were in, but instead it takes the focus, which may be why it does not work.

I'm using Windows XP, and it is supposed to work in XP.  Maybe it works in Vista, I don't know, but it doesn't work in XP.

Has anyone figured out how to use Easy Unicode Paster?  It comes without instructions or a help function.  It displays characters, but I can't figure out how to get them to paste into an application.
