Re: Text entry - is there an easy way?
Hi John, in your $TopDirectory/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/TextResources folder is a file called UnicodeCharacters.tr In this file you find all characters used by Mathematica. A typical row look like 0xyyyy \[FullName] ( aliasListForTeXAndSMGL ) CharacterType You can look for the alias for the defined characters and you may modify the alias list to add characters with out an alias.
