I've come up with a useful (at least in my opinion) plugin, specifically designed
to quickly insert special characters into the document. It's like the Windows
Character map, but with filters.
To explain this plugin, let me give you an example of how it works.
You select a capital A in Notepad++. You then select the option from the menu
(not sure yet what to call it). A window appears with a capital A in a field
at the top, and a bunch of buttons below it with captions such as
"Á","Ã","Á", and "A". You press one of these buttons, and the
highlighted A in Notepad++ is replaced by the caption of the button.
It doesn't necessarily have to be a single character that you highlight. For
example, you might highlight "Á" in the text, and it would bring up the
It works by grouping short pieces of text for the purpose of filtering. All
of the above options, for instance, are variations of a capital A, and therefore
highlighting any of them tells it that you want to look up all the other variations.
If you highlight a capital E or variation of it, you would get a different set
You can also type your text directly into the field at the top of the window
and it would update the button captions in real time.
You don't have to have any text highlighted to use it; it will insert the text
at the cursor position instead.
The groups are configured in an .ini file, so you can add to or modify it to
suit your own needs.
The coding is 99% finished, and I plan to release it next week some time. My
#1 issue is: What should I call the darn thing? Any ideas?
