HanWJ Chinese Software New Version Readme


Tone pinyin is the full form of pinyin, and is widely used in Chinese teaching and document indexing. Yet its typing is difficult.

New version of Hanwj Chinese Smart Editor fixed bug and extended the innovative HanWJ Tone Pinyin Input Method, with which typing of toned pinyin can be done with just one press. Documentation is improved.

Brief introduction:

In western input mode, pressing down vowel key and then quickly typing Tone key (leftmost column of keys on keyboard or numeric keys).
Examples: pressing down 'a', then quickly typing ~ key will input '¨¡'. holding u, tap TAB key, produces ¨²; holding u, tap 2 key, also produces ¨².

In Chinese input mode, this is done by typing pinyin, then type tone key (on leftmost column of keys); then type F8 or RightShift+e to produce the toned letter.
