Problem in inserting special characters in non-keypad keyboard

I have got a problem inserting special characters in my word document like “è” in Resume.

To do the job before, I use the ALT + [decimal value of the character] on the keypad.

This trick does not work using the numbers on the keyboard.

For example, then is equivalent to ALT + 164.

You can use the Character Map to insert a special character.

Using the Character Map has been just as simple as selecting the character on the grid of characters based on the font selected.

Select the character then click the select button then click copy and paste it into your word document.

To run the Character Map, follow the guide below:

1. Click Start button then select Programs, Accessories, System Tools

2. Click Character Map

One more way to run the Character Map is the following procedure:

1. Click Start then Run, run dialog box pops-up on the screen.

2. Type CHARMAP on the run dialog box then click Ok.

Or if you are using Windows 7 or Windows Vista:

1. Click Start then on the Search programs and file input box type “character map”. While typing you will see the result instantly at the top of your search box.

2. Click the Character Map on the Programs.

The very best way for this issue is by pressing the CTRL key + the Ad-on character then release the CTRL key then press the main character. For example, insert the character “ñ”; the character is composed of “~” and “n”. To produce “~” key you hold the Shift key then press the “~” in your keyboard. Without holding the Shift key will result “`”. To produce the “n” just pressing the N key and holding the Shift key + N will result the capital N. Now let’s do it in step by step.

1. Hold down the CTRL key.

2. Since we need the “~” character and it is in the upper case of “`” character, press SHIFT + “~”. Note: just press the key not holding the key.

3. Release the CTRL key.

4. Press the N key. Press SHIFT + N for the Ñ character.

Practice makes perfect so practice as you want and experiment for the other character like È.

You can solve this problem by using the insert tools of the Word 2007 itself.

You just need to go to the Insert Menu in your Word then go to the Symbol option found in the upper rightmost of your Word then select the symbols you want to use.

You can also copy and paste the used symbols if you want to use it again without doing the steps all over again.
