input of radicals

Recommended Posts

enaskitis

Hello everyone,

I would like to input radicals on my Windows. I do not want to input radicals and get chinese characters, just to input and see the radicals themselves.

Is that possible via any way?

Thanks a lot

gougou, I got you, thanks. I do use Microsoft PinYin IME 2003. But I get the radical I'm looking for at the end of a long list of characters, e.g. if I type "dian" I get the corresponding radical after doing twice PageDown, on no. 8.

Do you know of a table of JUST radicals [i.e. not characters AND radicals] to choose from, in case I just want to type radicals not characters?

koneko, I'll check your suggestion too, thanks.

Yes, the help page I quoted :wink:

(Press the 'Help' button (the one with the question mark) in the language bar, then Microsoft Pinyin IME Help -> Advanced Topics -> Radical input)

Enaskitis: "I would like to input radicals on my Windows. I do not want to input radicals and get chinese characters, just to input and see the radicals themselves."

Am probably too late on this one at least for Enaskitis, but might be of interest for others ...

Using IME for traditional Chinese, Microsoft phonetic IME 2002 (this is version I have), Tool menu, IME pad, second choice on the left (部), you have the list of keys.

Clicking on one very often gives you at the top of the list the symbol you are looking for - traditional or simplified. It is automatically pasted into the document you have opened - mail, word or even here, see below.

A few variants are still missing, of course, but it seems to me this is already far better than copy and paste from a preestablished list, or try to remember the phonetics of each key ...

I use Microsoft PinYin IME 2003, and I can't find the phonetic thing. Also there is no Tool menu. I see an IME pad but the second choice on the left is to toggle English/Chinese.

Please explain

Actual seetings will of coruse depend upon your operating system but, basically, the IME pad with tools and radicals requires that you use the "traditional Chinese" language and keyboard ("Chinese Taiwan"). As you know, you can easily shift from one version to the other inside the same message or document. The language bar must be activated to use this function.

You may find http://www.zhongwenweb.com/tradinstall.html useful ...

If you have a different system, please specify here ... Am sure someone can help !

I also am on the 2003 version, and couldn't find the option JVGruat was talking about. But, depending on what you need, you might just use the list he posted above?
