    Nice! Thanks 8)

  2. Brendy says:

    I’m not exactly sure how to use this. Do you just click on the text box and select a symbol? If so, it doesn’t work. I’ve tested it in this text box and on Facebook. Am I doin’ it wrong?

  3. Luc VN says:

    Nice extension & good find.
    I hope you continue adding other characters soon…
    I posted about it here: http://www.chromeplugins.org/google/chrome-talk/test-glyphs-extension-8895.html#post19990

    appreciate a “thumbs up” symbol;

    would it be possible for the symbols to be in colour ?

  5. 3fonov says:

    sulasno: What did you mean “in colour”?
    Luc VN: What characters you want to see?

  6. Omiod says:

  11. sulasno says:

    can the symbols be in colours rather than in black and white?
    can we add our symbols ?

  12. sulasno says:

    I took a peep at popup.html and was wondering whether I could add some similes stored on a server

  13. says:

    Make a hotkey!

  14. QQFarmer says:

    Doesn’t work with the official Google Chrome help forum. Can you fix it?

  15. bhawika says:

    it works fine, sometime we have to refresh the website after the installation.. ☺☻♫♫⅞⅝♣♣

    It crashes everytime with Google Chrome 4.0.249.22 in Linux (specifically Ubuntu 9.10; kernel 2.6.31-16)
    I have a feeling this only works in Windows since the method to add special characters is different from that of other systems.

    I think in Windows you use ALT+
    whereas in Linux its CTRL+SHIFT+

    ex: ® = CTRL+SHIFT+00AE
    or Ç = CTRL+SHIFT+00C7
    or あ = CTRL+SHIFT+3042 (Hirigana letter “A”)

    So, if that was the case, it would be nice to implement the unicoded method.

    good work, but Its not working on my Chromium (4.0.266.0 (Ubuntu build 33943))

  18. BloodyT says:

    Its interesting, but it would be much better if it was editable (so users could add their own characters, or any lumps of text)

    Currently to use you have to cut the characters from the page it prompts btw
    this would be better if they were buttons, and inserted the char where your cursor bar is (the flashy line after text as you type)

  19. 3fonov says:

    BloodyT: It works exactly as you say now. Just update extension and look into options page.

  20. BloodyT says:

    oh I didnt see that XD nice
    another suggestion is icons (what you want it to show, then what it prints)
    so if you wanted it to add a large chunk of text, you wouldnt see said text pile when you click it, rather your short descrip of the textpile

  21. BloodyT says:

    what i meant by the above, is it would be nice to add smileys to the bar, ect

  22. 3fonov says:

    BloodyT: you can also add multiple symbols at a time.

  23. BloodyT says:

    im aware of that, but lets say i wanted to add a smiley to it: http://www.smileyicon.net/smiley-icon-5.jpg

    now when I open the menue, i see a long url (instead of just the smiley)
    although this wouldnt work on all sites (forums that dont support html in post), its basically what im looking for

    To solve this problem, there could be a second section, 1 for how it apears in the menue (which would be just the smiley pic, or a special char (via link))
    and the second would be what is actually pasted, (so you can have large quantities of text, ;like links, on speed paste (via 1 click), without having the actual text visible when in the menue

  24. sulasno says:

    how to add similes ?
    does it support unicode ?

    &©®€♥♠

  25. BloodyT says:

    smileys are not actually characters… there links to tiny pictures…

    it does technically support it, but it would look bad if you were to add em

  26. sulasno says:

    I think this extension does not work with https sites

  27. 3fonov says:

    sulasno: Yes it is. I’ll add https support soon

  28. BloodyT says:

    doesnt it just paste whatever is between the (enters) when you hit it,
    there should be a way to shorten it so its more practical to paste links
    maybe if there is a “|” in the message, it post everything before it in the glymph page as the button, and everything after it, is pasted when the button is pressed.
    oh and http detection would be awsome, so you could make the “button” text a picture

    and on a minor note, care to make the main icon light blue (the color of default theme) with darkblue outine
    google should hard code in an option to ‘match’ icons, aka converts to black and white, then sets the hue to fit with your theme.

  29. BloodyT says:

    instead of ‘description’ it could be what is pasted when you have a ,
    button , this is whats pasted onto the page

  30. 3fonov says:

    BloodyT: Now can insert html-entities with Ctrl key. Update at https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/ahacemacibfdfgdfeonaobmhnocipggn

  31. sulasno says:

    thanks for the update
    on my way
