keyboard – How can I type unicode characters without using the mouse? – Ask Different

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/08/27

[WayBack] keyboard – How can I type unicode characters without using the mouse? – Ask Different (thanks [WayBack] malte):

  1. Press ⌃ Control+⌘ Command+ ␣ space to bring up the characters popover.
  2. Then type in the code point and press the down arrow to select the symbol. (Use U+#### as code point)
  3. Then simply press ENTER and you are done.

This also works with the names of the symbols (e.g. arrow).

Additional information

Note the icon in the top right of the character popover. It changes the popover to the full Character Viewer, which cannot be navigated by the keyboard. Click the icon in the top right of the Character Viewer to return to the popover. Many thanks to @Tom Gewecke for this information.
