II. Quick Guide


1. User Interface

In PinYin mode, when you type in pinyin letters, HanWJ will put them on the first prompt line:


Use ESC key to clear the pinyin letters on the prompt line.


In PinYin mode, the leftmost key-column on the keyboard represents the Tone 1 to 4. Right-Shift key represent the 5th tone.

HanWJ has two Input Modes: Chinese and English.(For HanWJ Smart Editor and HanWJ Chinotes, if you want to use system-provided Chinese Input Method, please set HanWJ Input Mode to be English.


To switch Input Mode: hold down Right-Alt key and pressing letter "O" or "="; Or just press F12 (or Ctrl key; you decide whether to use F12 or Ctrl key on the Input Options dialog)


In PinYin mode, if the first letter entered is "i", HanWJ will enter so-called i-mode. In i-mode, you can type in English letters directly.You exit from i-mode by typing Esc key.


In PinYin mode, if the first letter entered is "v", HanWJ will enter so-called v-mode. In v-mode, you can type in special Chinese characters,e.g.,"".You exit from v-mode by typing Esc key.


In PinYin mode, if the first letter entered is "u", HanWJ will enter so-called u-mode. In u-mode, you can type in Chinese number characters using number keys,e.g.,""(letter "o" will input Chinese zero ""). You exit from u-mode by typing Esc key.



2. Left-Alt key

Left-Alt key has special usage in HanWJ.When HanWJ is running and in Chinese Input mode, it is no longer a normal Alt key like the Right-Alt key.


In Chinese Input mode, by holding down Left-Alt key and pressing other key at the same time, you can get the normal western characters;e.g.,Holding down Left-Alt key and pressing "a", you get the normal "a" letter.


In Chinese Input mode, you can still input capital letters in the normal way; i.e.,by holding down Shift key and pressing other key at the same time.


Left-Alt is also a wildcard key when inputing Chinese. It can be used to represent one or more pinyin letters which you don't want to type in or don't remember.


For example,in PinYin mode,to input "֮Ϊ", you can type in "chengz?wei".



On the prompt line,Left-Alt is shown as question mark "?".
