Re: how to escape the notepad plus plus character panel?

Hi  Sascha ,

Pressing F8 works to take you back to the main edit screen.  I don't see this indexed anywhere with the help screens, but it is good to know that this keystroke works.

This is one of the issues I have with Notepad++: while much of it is accessible, many of the keyboard shortcuts are completely non-standard.

hi,

I sometimes use notepad plus plus to hand edit brl or brf braille files and other text files. I went into the edit menu and I wanted to enter some accented characters into a text file so I brought up the character panel, found the character I wanted and pressing enter puts that character into the file. But now when I run notepad++ the character panel keeps coming up and I can’t find a way to close it. So how do I close the character panel? I’m using the latest NVDA with CodeFactory eloquence and vocalizer addon.
