Does Macro Express support Unicode characters?

Currently Macro Express does not fully support Unicode. But there is an option to insert Unicode characters into other applications.

Macro Express Pro v added support for Rich Text. To use this feature, open the Text Type command and select the Paste Rich Text option from the drop down menu. Simulate Keystrokes is the default selection.

Copy the Unicode characters to the clipboard from another source and paste them into the Text Type edit field. When finished, save the change.

When the macro plays back into another application, the text – including Unicode characters, is pasted into your application (providing that the application accepts Unicode).

Macro Express Pro v introduced an enhanced Alt-Key Sequence command that allows typing Unicode characters into an application.
