Keyboard Viewer and Character Palette via AppleScript
Authored by: thellum on Oct 28, '05 09:31:54AM

Why not just enable these two apps in System Prefs > International > Input Menu? This way they are there under the national flag icon in the menu bar - hidden but easily accessable. If you have to travel down to the dock for a click on an applescript, is it not the same to travel up to the flag icon to see either palette?

I can't enable them because they are not there. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

I forgot to say that the Edit Menu > "Special Characters..." menu item does nothing when I select it.

Personally, I don't like that menu bar item because it takes up space for something I very occasionally use, while being fuggly. Every other menu bar item is black, and that's a big ugly glaring red white and blue. call me a hater i suppose.
