Easy insertion of special characters.
PLEASE READ THE WHOLE DESCRIPTION BEFORE INSTALLING:
Glyphics lets you add all kinds of symbols and special characters and structure them within sublevels in your right-click menu for easy insertion into text boxes on the web. Whether you are doing scientific work and often use mathematical operators or Greek letters, or you just want to add smilies, stars, hearts etc. to your facebook-page or tweets, Glyphics makes it easy. Just right click the text box, and click the symbol you want to insert. Glyphics also supports strings of symbols, so if there's a specific sequence of symbols you use often, you can insert the whole sequence in two simple clicks.
Adding symbols is easy, and Glyphics lets you insert a whole string of symbols and decide how the string should be split up into separate entries – for instance, adding the whole Greek alphabet is done in seconds using your system's character map and telling Glyphics to separate every character in the string.
Please note that when you first install Glyphics, there are no symbols in the menu, so you will need to go to Glyphics' options-page, either through the Glyphics right-click menu or the Chrome extensions manager, and add the symbols you want before you can start using it.
Glyphics has been tested and confirmed to work on Linux and Windows 7, and should work just as well on a Mac.
NOTE: Support for rich text areas have been implemented in version 1.2.0, but a bug in Chrome prevents some rich text areas from being recognized as such. There is also a bug in Chrome that causes Glypics' insertion of characters to be somewhat dependent on caret position—in other words, if Glyphics doesn't seem to insert the symbol you clicked, try positioning the caret differently in the text. Unfortunately there is no way I know of to get around these issues, but as soon as the bugs are sorted out by the Chromium team, changes in Glyphics' behavior should be immediate. The bug reports are below, and you can star them to receive updates on the progress and possibly influence their priority.
