Introduction to AllChars


AllChars provides a quick, easy-to-remember way of creating accents like é Ü ç î æ and special characters like ƒ ² ‰ © £ ± ß ° 1/2 ¿ « » ™ „ in most Windows programs.

AllChars emulates the *nix Compose key on Windows.

AllChars v3.5 upwards supports macros: type a (short) name and AllChars will replace it with a (long) text.

AllChars is very easy and intuitive in usage and it is possible to adapt it to your wishes.

AllChars is FREEWARE.

AllChars works with Windows 3.11 or Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 4.0 and 2000.

How it works

Type <Ctrl>, (but don't hold it down). Then AllChars will take the next two characters you type and substitute another in their place.

For example: type    (and release it !) followed by and and you get an .

And the macros? Some examples:

  • type /wwa and AllChars will replace it by, or
  • type /now and AllChars will replace it by the current date in any format, or
  • type a secret macro and AllChars will log you in in your application or website.
