Re: [libreoffice-users] special characters from keyboard?

(I used to use ubuntu onboard onscreen keyboard which was very useful, especially for clasical greek, but since upgrading ubuntu to 18.04 i havent been able to get it to work for extended characters) On Friday, 9 August 2019, 12:04:36 BST, James Knott <james.knott@jknott.net> wrote:

I use the International U.S. English layout, which provides a lot of
extra characters.
