Symbol Macros v2

Symbol macros is a tiny programme that allows you to insert a number of diacritics, ligatures and various other symbols using helpful and obvious keyboard shortcuts. It was created using autohotkey a very useful piece of software for remapping keys and creating macros.

Version 2 adds more symbols making it useful for most European languages and changes the end character to ` instead of tab.
