Four Feature-Rich Tools
Keyman Desktop 8 comes equipped with four powerful tools, always close at hand in the Keyman Toolbox:
The On Screen Keyboard
The On Screen Keyboard visually teaches typing for a Keyman keyboard.
For mnemonic layouts, the On Screen Keyboard auto-adapts to the language and layout of your hardware keyboard.
Two Typing Options
Type using your hardware keyboard or click on screen.
The Keyboard Usage
Many keyboards include in-depth keyboard help, available in Keyboard Usage.
For some of our most complex keyboards, dynamic charts in Keyboard Usage help make learning to type easy.
The Font Helper
Right Font – Every Time
Font Helper takes the stress out of finding the right font for your keyboard. Your fonts are ranked to show which ones give the best support.
See What You're Missing
Not only does Font Helper rank your fonts, it also shows which characters in your keyboard each font supports.
The Character Map
Fully Unicode 6.0
Access every character in the newest version of the Unicode Standard from the Keyman Character Map.
Insert over 109,000 letters and symbols with a double-click. Say goodbye to multi-step clipboard actions.
Search with instant feedback, by name, range, block, font, or code point, using standard wildcards.
One Customisable Toolbox
The Keyman Toolbox is designed to let you work the way that suits you best:
Drag the Keyman Toolbox anywhere on your Desktop. Even your second monitor.
Select any font for the Keyman Character Map. Then choose the font size you like.
Resize the Keyman Toolbox as big as you need. Fonts for the On Screen Keyboard grow automatically as you resize.
Fade When Inactive
Set the Keyman Toolbox to be transparent when inactive. You'll enjoy the Toolbox and more screen space.
