CharacterPal: Your Symbol Cheat Widget

If you’re someone like me who’s memory isn’t all that great, you’d be pressed to remember all the keyboard shortcuts for the various menu items and keyboard symbols. If you wanted to insert an “•” in the document that you’re typing, how would you do it? The answer? Just press “Option - 8″. For the life of me I can’t remember all. I only remember the ones I use often. For the rest, forget it.

Thankfully there’s the CharacterPal widget from Taco Widgets. It’s a nifty add-on to the Dashboard that gives you the keyboard shortcuts for most of the symbols that you need. It also provides HTML and URL escape characters.

I found out about CharacterPal from this blog entry that’s a real help as well. Bookmark it too!

Try it out. CharacterPal is “Karmaware”. It’s available to download for free but highly recommended to donate a few bucks for good karma.
