Character Map

The Character Map is used to select characters that are not found on the keyboard.  

The Character Map can be reached two different ways.  The first is by pressing F6 while in any input field.  Any characters selected from the Character Map are returned and enter at the current cursor position.  The second way to reach the Character Map is to click the small blue button on the Special Characters ribbon on every input screen.  The map is then used to select up to eight characters to fill the ribbon.  The characters on the ribbon are then immediately available for adding to input fields.  See Special Characters for more information.
