Keystroke Shortcuts used in Kami:

Windows:

  • Typically have a NumLock in the top left corner and a number pad off to the right-hand side of the keyboard.

  • To use the shortcut, turn on NumLock / Fn, and make sure the cursor is flashing where you want the symbol to go. Press and hold the alt key, and then press numbers. You don’t need to press the + key. And that’s it.

MacBook:

  • Each keyboard shortcut symbol below is written out as opt + __ (where __ is the variable)

  • Holding Opt + Shift + __ will give you the caps version of the accent.

  • Hold down the key of the letter you want, and a menu will appear with all the different options for accents denoted by a number.

International Keyboard:

  • Use the following combinations to type-specific international characters on the US International keyboard.

  • The AltGr key is the Alt key on the right of the keyboard.
