Inserting Special Characters

If a survey requires special symbols, accented letters, or characters that do not belong to the Latin alphabet, use Microsoft’s built-in character map to add the characters to the survey.

  1. From the Windows toolbar, choose Start / Programs / Accessories / System Tools / Character Map
  2. For each character to add, click on the character and click Select to copy it into the Characters to copy field.
  3. After selecting all of the characters to copy, click the Copy button.
  4. Click once in the Question Designer, or HTML editor and move the cursor to the point to insert the special characters.
  5. Hold down the control key and press the letter v (Ctrl-V) to paste the special characters into the text.



NOTE: It is possible to paste special characters into almost any Windows application using this method.
