Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why do I get rectangles or funny signs when I write Devanagari, Gothic, etc.?
A: MultiKey supplies keyboard layouts to use with Unicode compliant fonts. Therefore, in order to display the characters MultiKey helps you to type, you also need a font that includes the script you need (and the case of complex scripts also a word processor capable of handling them). For very exotic scripts, you may have a look at ALPHABETUM Unicode.

Q: Instead of a grave accent, there is a small vertical line on the epsilon
A: This is only due to the screen resolution. Use a larger zoom factor or font size, or print it: then you will see the grave accents.

Q: I use Windows 7 and cannot access the MultiKey menu from the icon at the application bar.
A: Activate MultiKey by pressing Alt+Tab. Then press Alt+Space. The menu shows up - and also offers you to transfer the icon to the "Notification area".

Q: MultiKey sometimes ceases to work.
A: This can happen especially when switching between applications using the keyboard. Press Shift+Ctrl+Alt+L to re-initialize MultiKey. If nothing helps, close and restart MultiKey and, if necessary, your word processor.

Q: How to type a series of uncombined characters which represent a combination (e.g. "a+" instead of "á")?
A: Between the characters, press Shift+Ctrl+Alt. Or, to disable MultiKey temporarily, press Shift+Ctrl+Alt+X.

 

This program is a free service to anyone concerned with Ancient Greek etc. – if you feel the need to pay for it, do so to someone who needs it.
