FAQs on Nepali Special Alt+ Code Characters based on Comments:

Q1. Unable to use alt codes, eg if I'm doing Alt+0170 it's going to file save option? need help?
Reply- Check whether the num lock is on or not, if not on it. And try using the combination keys with the Alt. Make sure whether you use the short or long keyboard (number keys separately). It's a bit difficult in the short Laptop keyboard for special Alt+ Code.

Q2.Can you please tell me how to write > and  श्व in Preeti Font?
Reply- Use:     Shift + > for >
                        Comment if you know for श्व

Q3. On my laptop, there is no number lock key. Can you please suggest?
Reply- You must use the numeric keypad to type the Alt+ numbers and not the keyboard.  I think you have a keyboard without a numeric keypad. However, most of the recent laptops allow using numeric keypad inside the keyboard. To activate the features you have to Click on: 'Fn' + 'NumLk' (at F11 in my case) keys together. You need to shift to the keyboards and numeric keypad. I personally do not recommend it. There must be Fn keys and NumLk to get work on a laptop without a number keypad.

Q4. Looks like special characters do not work with the laptop keyboards.
Reply- True. But you can use it using 'Fn' + 'NumLk' keys in a very inefficient way.

Using Alt+ special character code in the short keyboard.

Once you do this, you can use a number pad inside your keyboard for a special character code. The only drawback is that you need to off the NumLk after every insert.

Q4. How to write km?
Reply- In Preeti font, simply k + m gives km

Q5. How to insert Nepali font in the symbol list?
Reply- No need to insert Nepali fond in the symbol list it's already there if you have Preeti font installed on your device. Go to Symbol >> More symbols >> In font: type Preeti. There you see Nepali font in the symbol list.
