    Good day all! I have to apply vinyl to some cloth sheets for a backdrop...irrelevant to question...but...I was wondering, can signlab type in french? The customer doesn't have a french computer at home and is able to bring up the french characters, but we tried on signlab and couldnt figure it out. Wondering if any of you know how to do this in signlab?? Otherwise i'll just have to put them in manually, which is no biggie, just time consuming!:Canada 2: :U Rock:

    Can you use the alt key?
    For example, alt + 130 = é
    Check your font charmap for the proper numbers.

    I use the ALT + keyboard code for mine. Fire up Window's 'Character Map' program, select the font you are using and then click on the character you want to use; it will give you the Alt+number to enter or simply copy it and past it into your document. I know the main ones quite well but initially, I made a chart and printed it for reference.

    Cheers!

    Use charmap to browse ascii characters

    The language of your keyboard can be set through the Windows Control Panel, though that will only be useful if you are experienced with the specialized keystrokes.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    In SignLab, you can right-click the Text Compose button to open the Font Detective, then choose and click the Select button. The entire font set will be displayed.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    However, I would recommend using the Windows Character Map utility. Just go Start menu >> Run, and type "charmap" in the Run dialog.<o:p></o:p>

    Cheers,

    Rod
