The reason I bought RootsMagic is that has Unicode symbols. Unfortunately it is tedious to do Ctrl+T all the time. Can it be a button on window “ADD new Individual”. Ideally with all symbols recently used. It would make it much easier. Polish names are full of different characters.

I have installed the Polish keyboard in addition to the standard UK English and switch between the two depending on the language I am wanting.

In the add new person window there is a plenty of room below burial and OK Cancel buttons. In this place in can be added new one as shortcut for symbols. Microsoft World has a list of recent used symbols. So it can be done.
Yes, your suggestion of Polish keyboard is valued one. I have to try it.
Another suggestion I just have (my first days with RootsMagic) is to display last place. When I key in next child I have to retype a birthday place name unless it is on top of the list. I don't need to go through similarly written cities from all over the world. I used PAF for last 20 years, it explains my suggestion.

I have never used PAF.
One way to reduce the amount of retyping is to use a good clipboard manager. The one I use and have recommended here is Clipx (www.bluemars.org/clipx/) It is free and worth a try for all computer use.

Thanks Joe, I know that you can go around. I just made a suggestion to make RootsMagic even better. If there are third party programs to do a needed task it means that it is doable. So why not incorporate them into RM? That all.
We are end users aren’t we?

Confirming these are on the enhancement request list.
You can also look up the Windows command for adding the characters you want. I know Alt+156 = £ for the British Pound.
