Summary0000569: Insert Special window is modal, complicating multiple insertions of special characters
DescriptionWhen multiple special characters have to be inserted in a text frame, the "Insert Special" window has to be called and dismissed several times.
If it wasn't modal, it could be called once and dismissed at the end of all the insertions.
TagsNo tags attached.

You can already insert multiple times from the Insert Special window. select chars, Insert, select more, Insert...etc.

At this point we cannot make it non model as its a plugin.

You can insert multiple times... at the same spot. :)

I often have to insert the "..." character at various spots in a frame for example.

Well, it's not a major issue, I can live with that for now :) Maybe later it will be possible to change the way plugins are handled. No rush though.

Thanks for the feedback. :)

If you Right Click on a character in the Insert Special window you can see a magnificated view of that character with the Character Code in hex below.
When editing the Textframe normally you can press F12 and enter that Character Code to insert this character. Attention the hex code has 4 Digits and must be entered as a 4 Digit hex number.

you can use non modal "Insert Glyph..." in Story Editor for now. I keep it modal for "normal" frame editing as it is not so easy to implement it. Stay tuned.
