[oXygen-user] Quicker way to insert character entities?
Tue Jul 7 07:37:43 CDT 2009
I'm using the authoring application. Is there any way to get character entities into the Author view? I expected that, by typing the special character, e.g. a double-quote, the editor would automatically replace it with the standard entity, " in this case. But it is not the case. The document is saved with just the literal character, as typed.
By trial and error I found that, if I switch to the Text view, I can type "&" to display a drop-list, from which I can select an entity and it will be inserted at the caret. This is terribly slow and awkward to do. It is faster to copy and paste.
I can't find any reference to character entities/special characters in either the Oxygen or the Author help. Any clues welcome.
