 +====== Keyboard Editing ======
 +===== Entering hieroglyphs =====
 +To enter signs with the keyboard, click in the main window (the one that displays the actual hieroglyphic text, not in the one with the so-called "​Manuel de codage"​).
 +When you type a letter or a number in the main window, this letter or number appears in the small panel in the bottom left panel of JSesh. This allows you to type "​Manuel de Codage"​ codes.
 +  * Lots of signs have phonetic codes, which correspond to their translitteration;​
 +  * all signs are accessible through their code in Gardiner'​s grammar. To find the code, you can push at the "Basic Hieroglyphs"​ button or look at the hieroglyphic palette.
 +Once the code is typed, you must validate it. To validate, type one of **space, ':',​ '​*',​ '​-',​ enter**
 +The sign will be added to the hieroglyphic text.
 +Phonetic codes can correspond to more than one sign. For instance, iw corresponds to one of {{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​iw1.png}},​{{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​iw2.png}},​ {{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​iw3.png}},​ {{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​iw4.png}} and {{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​iw5.png}}. The "​official"​ sign for iw is {{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​iw1.png}} according to the manuel . However, you might want another sign. In this case, it's quite simple : press the **space bar**, and the system will circle through the possibilities,​ one at a time.
 +Your last choice will be retained the next time you type the code in this session.
 +==== Phonetic codes ====
 +The uniliteral signs have the following codes, which are also used when typing transliteration:​
 +^Code           ^ Letter^
 +|A        |ꜣ (aleph) |
 +|i        |i҆ (yod)   |
 +|y        |y  |
 +|a |ꜥ (ayin) |
 +|w |w |
 +|b |b |
 +|p |p |
 +|f |f |
 +|m |m |
 +|n |n |
 +|r |r | 
 +|l |l |
 +|h |h | 
 +|H |ḥ |
 +|x |ḫ |
 +|X |ẖ |
 +|z |z |
 +|s |s |
 +|S |s |
 +|q |ḳ |
 +|k |k |
 +|g |g |
 +|t |t |
 +|T |ṯ |
 +|d |d | 
 +|D |ḏ |
 +W is also used for Z7, M for Aa15, and N for S3.
 +===== Grouping signs =====
 +The sign you type when validating can be used to group the hieroglyphs. Both '​space'​ and '​-'​ have the simple effect that the next sign will be added in a new cadrat.
 +  * ':'​ and '​*'​ will add the next sign respectively below and besides the last sign entered.
 +  * '​enter'​ has two consequences : it validates a sign (if there is one), and it adds a new line.
 +If no code has been entered (that is, if the code window is entered), the previous grouping sign type will group the last two cadrats. It looks a bit strange, but you will see that it's quite natural. you can use it to group signs as an afterthough.
 +==== Exempli gratia ====
 +If you want to type the word {{http://​​files_jsesh/​images/​pt.jpg|pt}},​ you can :
 +  * type '​p',​ then '​*',​ '​t',​ ':',​ '​pt'​
 +  * type '​p',​ '​t',​ then '​*',​ ''​space''​ (which kind of validates the '​*'​),​ pt, ':',​ and ''​space''​.
