webfork yes I did thank some time before I posted this, its not something I do often but this App really helped me and made it very easy to do what I was trying to do. Before using WinCompose it was a real nightmare to do things I wanted and most often I failed. So once again thanks for the hard work on this great useful software. ^5

i like it but i wish it was easier to search for say symbols like dollar signs, ampersands etc and keep all the alphabet letter variations separate. Also, should be able to have a "favorites" tab that the user adds the best ones to.

@ samhocevar: Excellent software! The honor goes to you as the author ... voted by me with 5 points.
But: It was first introduced my user "Midas" ( see: ) ... so I changed the "Suggested by" to: "Midas".
