For everyone who wants some easy way to type the unicodes characters for apostrpohe (U+2019) or suspension points (U+2026) in musicbrainz, I just wrote a userscript to display a custom context menu on every input text and textarea of the website.
Just select the input you want to type in, and press “Ctrl+M” to pop up the menu. Then select the caracter you want to insert using either the mouse or the up/down arrows.
Nice idea, but I can’t get it to work with Tampermonkey and Firefox 59.0.3 (64-bit) under Windows 7. The menu shows up at the bottom of the page and doesn’t accept any mouse clicks or arrow keys to select the line to copy. When I place my cursor in a field to edit and press Ctl-M, nothing happens.
I can confirm that it works fine under Chrome and Tampermonkey.
Looks good, except I think you may be showing the wrong code for right double quote on one of your lines. The right double quote and left & right double quotes show different U-values. Still not working in Firefox (although I’m not sure if you looked at that yet). Thanks.
Next step will be to beautify the menu (it’s ugly right?), and I’ll try to add some customisation: Should I maintain a german artist with my french keyboard, I may want to add ß as a regular caracter, or a ø for a swedish artist.
But I don’t want those caracters to be published for everyone, or this tool might become the full unicode list, and then too hard to use…
