I am using the Google Cantonese Input and Google Pinyin Input on my phone and cannot find a way to type 𨳒. Even when I switch to the handwriting method, 𨳒 does not come up as an option and I get them separated as 門小 instead.

How would I type 𨳒 with Pin Yin or Yale/Jyutping input? For now, I'm just using 屌你 instead of 𨳒你. Otherwise, I would have to copy and paste 𨳒 and it gets annoying.

    There is one thing you have to check first, does the input method you use really have the character? No IME can input any character, but only those built into the IME. – fefe Nov 30 '17 at 1:56

The character 「𨳒」 is in the Unicode CJK Unified Ideographs Extension B, which may not be supported by all operating systems and IMEs. Some IMEs support it but the feature is disabled by default.

For a Cangjie IME that supports extension B, the code is 日弓火 (anf).

Use the handwriting keyboard or 屌 is fine.

One could always argue that if you find it annoying to copy/paste 𨳒, you're using it too much, and should clean up your vocabulary :-)

It all depends on the platform you're using. I'm on a Mac (laptop) and Android (phone/tablet). On my Mac, I have customized an old Jyutping IME by Dominic Yu, based on the LSHK table. I added 𨳒 (and many other things) to the IME. You can get it here.

On my Android, I use MultiLing, which is good in most cases, but its fuzzy logic makes it very hard to input single-syllable words that are not common (at least in their idea of common). I usually resort, for such characters, to trying first pinyin, then Japanese, or, if everything fails, hand-writing.

The character is not supported by most of the fonts and IMEs. You can set up a proper font or just type "屌" (Pinyin: diao,Jyutping: diu) instead.

The Cangjie IME KH.Lee referred to is an IME that supports over 70,000 characters. You have to have a good understanding of the structure of a character before you type it correctly.

Cangjie is provided in Windows and Mac OS and is widely used in Hong Kong and Macau for most people have not learned Pinyin or Jyutping.
