Neokey Trinkey Non ASCII Characters

by acaguy on Sat Jul 24, 2021 3:20 pm

I am trying to use NeoKey Trinkey to enter an em dash when pressed. When I try and use the code in the tutorial for CircuitPython I get an error that it is a non-ASCII character. Is there a workaround or another way to code the key to enter an Em Dash?: Please help.

You may need to get a bit lower level than trying to send a string. We don't have enough ram to store how to type every unicode character. You'll want to mimic pressing the keys that you would type to get an em dash. (I don't know what they are.)
