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.
