I have used the Character map in Windows to add letters like i which it says I have to use alt+0237 But on some Characters like this one it has U+IECD, now I am wondering as to why it doesn't have the alt combination, and how can I type that without using the character map

This character (U+1ECD) is a Unicode codepoint, and may not have an ANSI equivalent under the active Windows codepage/system locale.

When you are typing in a RichEdit control, you can type /1ecd followed by Alt+x to convert the codepoint to the character (and vice-versa). The sytem Edit control though is limited to Alt+8-bit ANSI codepoint.

Example RichEdit-based editors:

  • Microsoft Word
  • WordPad

Example Edit-based editors:

  • Notepad
  • Visual Studio Code Editor

Thank You that actually Works! Only works in the Richtext editors, it will not work in notepad.
