Unicode subrange dialog
The Unicode subrange dialog is accessed through the Filter button on the Unicode palette. It is used to define the Unicode subrange the palette displays.
Even though the Unicode palette can display all 65536 Unicode points at once, its utility lies in the fact that the display can be restricted to only subsets that make sense for the current layout. Without this possibility, it would be extremely difficult to locate a desired character in the unrestricted Unicode list.
The entire span of Unicode characters is divided into so-called Unicode subsets. A subset is a contiguous zone of code points belonging to a specific alphabet or grouped by a similar criteria. Examples of Unicode subsets are:
The Unicode palette can filter the characters by displaying a selected number of Unicode subsets. An active combination of visible subsets is called subrange in KbdEdit.
The Unicode subrange dialog contains two lists:
Subsets can be moved between "Inactive" and "Active" lists using one of the following methods:
To select a subset, simply click on it. Multiple selection is possible by holding down the Ctrl and/or Shift key.
Either list can be sorted on the subset's numeric value or name. You can easily change the sorting order by clicking on the desired column heading ("Subset" or "Name"). The active sorting order is indicated by a small up or down arrow next to column's name.
Three additional buttons automate some common operations:
