Entering Maestro characters into the Shape Designer

I just ran into a problem trying to enter certain Maestro characters into the Shape Designer with keystrokes. Some work and some don't. Peter Thomsen at the FinaleForum mentioned a bug (pointed out by Jan Angermüller) and recommended using unicode to enter the missing symbols. This seems to require a translation of the unicode numbers into a format recognizable by the Shape Designer. http://www.finaleforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=14974 Before I start creating a list, does anyone already have such a chart that they would share? The format and sequence is: 00A0, 00A1…00AA…00AF…00F0…00F1…00FA…00FF

Yes. You need to add a unicode input "language". It looks like that for me:

You use than it with the Alt key.

Than you use this list for getting the symbols:

Thanks, OCTO. That chart plus the hexadecimal converter that Motet just recommended did the trick!
