Problems with SPECIAL CHARACTERS in the EDIT menu

Hi,

I have a MacBook running at 2.2GHz 2GB RAM and Leopard (10.5.2).

When I use my NISUS WRITER PRO (1.0.3) and trying to open the

"SPECIAL CHARACTERS" box in the "EDIT" menu-bar, nothing happens...

I don't know what to do. I've tried to uninstall and install again, but still...

nothing happens.

When I try to do the same on my Mac-Mini 1.66GHz 1GB RAM Leopard

10.5.2., it works well.

What can I do to resolve this?

Thanks

Hi -

as this is to "Show Character Palette" - you need to have this component activated: "System Preferences/International/Input Menu" and don't forget to activate "Show input menu in menu bar" there as well.

Hope this helps

I don't have the "Character Palette" option in my "INPUT MENU".....

How can this happen? Maybe it's because I used the software "MONOLINGUAL"? Maybe it's because of something else?

Well -

but it's still selectable in "System Preferences/International/Input Menu" - I guess, or not? Scroll down maybe? As I wrote you need to select, i.e activate it, to have it available via Input Menu for all applications then. It won't show on default.

The menu Edit > Special Characters will always be visible. The one Elbrecht mentions is an optional menu that appears in a different location.

Seraph, does the Edit > Special Characters menu work in other applications, eg: TextEdit?

Yeah -

Martin is right - you even seem to be able to activate the Character Palette for Input Menu by just going Edit/Special Characters! Didn't know that shortcut!
