A typical case for using the Unicode Character Table is to insert special characters, e.g. Σ (u+2211) in an XML document. The course of action could be this:

  1. Start the XML Editor Perspective in the TextGridLab.
  2. Double-click the wanted XML document in the Navigator to open it.
  3. Click or double-click the hidden tab “Unicode Character Table” next to Navigator and Metadata Editor to open the Unicode Character Table View.
  4. Place the mouse pointer in the XML document where the special character is needed.
  5. Select Σ from the table with mathematical operators and click “Insert”.
  6. Σ is added to the XML document.
