DIACRITICS AND SPECIAL CHARACTERS WITH MACRO EXPRESS

These are the keys to which diacritics and special characters are mapped in Voyager according to the WINDOWS ALA KEYBOARD MAP when MACROEXPRESS is turned on. The most frequently used diacritics are on the number pad and are entered at NORMAL or (generally) ALT.*  For alternate characters mapped to the keyboard, note that most sequences begin with either CTRL ALT or CTRL ALT SHIFT, corresponding to normal and shift on the keyboard map.If a key sequence was already claimed by a MACROEXPRESS system macro, the sequence will usually begin with WIN ALT.  Characters mapped to the number pad are also mapped to the key sequence used in RLIN for Windows. In Voyager, the character appears only after you release the keys used in a key sequence. Frequently used diacritics may also be entered through a menu window (F12). You can also evoke a supermenu, a menu listing ALL macros on the *.mex file in use with the key sequence Ctrl + Alt + Shift + z. To enter any character (or run any macro) listed on a menu, doubleclick on any menu entry (or press the letter or number to the left of the entry) ; this will also close the menu.

*You can  use the number pad without turning off MACROEXPRESS  by holding down the WIN key before pressing a number key on the keypad. If you have both the diacritics.mex and functionkey.mex files loaded in Program Files>Macro Express, Ctrl + Keyboard 5 allows you to switch files. So, if you are using diacritics.mex and want to use the keypad to enter numbers temporarily, press Ctrl + Keyboard 5 to switch to the functionkey.mex file, where diacritics are not mapped to the keyboard.
