Basic use: Use the Show Block selector on the Lookup tab, or add characters or code points or a search string to one of the input fields in the Find field and click on one of Hex, Dec, Characters or Search. The icon repeats the action. UniView produces tables or lists of characters on the left. By default, clicking on a character in a list or table displays detailed information for that character to the right. Use  to add the characters to the Edit Buffer box instead. Alternatively, you can paste characters directly into the Edit Buffer box and hit to discover what they are.

The app covers Unicode version 7.0.0. For more information about Unicode 7.0, see the Unicode 7.0.0 page or this very informative Babelstone post.

Tables and lists appear here.

To get started, either:

  • select a Unicode block or character range using the controls above,
  • add characters, code points or text to the Search field and click on one of Hex, Dec, Characters or Text, or
  • paste some text into the text area and hit the  button to list the characters.

Clicking/tapping on characters in a table or list displays detailed information for them in the right-hand part of the page. Double-clicking/tapping adds the character to the text area. To move all characters to the text area, click on  .

By default, characters are shown as images. If you have the necessary font you can speed up display by unchecking Use graphics above.

No images are available for the characters in the very large Han, Hangul or Tangut blocks. I recommend installing the free Babelstone Han and Tangut Yinchuan fonts to get good coverage.
