Hi, Yes, you can enter the hex code directly in dialog boxes. However, the hex code of the Windows character map often does not match the character which is then shown in FrameMaker. If the character is not listed in the FrameMaker "Character Sets" PDF file, I usually test all characters on my keyboard until I find the correct one.
