Using ALT key to generate ASCII characters
Answer ID 7843   |   Last Review Date 09/26/2018

Why am I not able to generate ASCII code using the Alt key?


All versions on Enhanced Console


Enhanced Console is using a different .NET framework in which Microsoft changed the behavior of the ribbon.


This is the standard behavior since the application is based on .NET framework and the ribbon functionality is inherited. When pressing the "Alt" key, it creates a combination with the ribbon items instead of ASCII code of different characters.

Standard text with the specific characters can be created or the Character Map can be used to copy/paste the desired character.
