I am using the autotext function for this purpose. That way, you type a short mnemonic, followed by the F3 key, which substitutes by the character you want. This mnemonic can be one letter, so for example you could define d<F3> to be your special d character.

This is only possible when you want to wire dfs the it isn't possible to press dfse<F3> there must be a space before the autotext mnemonic.

But thanks for your try

You are absolutely right. I overlooked this Embarassed . However, Autotext also works with selected text: you should therefore first press Shift + left arrow to select the d and then F3 will evaluate the selection and produce the desired character.
