Have ASCII code compatibility with Office 2019. I use ASCII codes for French all the time, faster than the French keyboard.
I use my regular english keyboard to type in French, Spanish or Portuguese. With that I use ASCII codes to insert the special characters for each language. I do a lot of original writing and translations and do not understand why MS Office 2019does not accomodate ASCII characters. I do not need to purchase Office 365 , but apparently it is compatible with the ASCII codes ! Ridiculous.
