Today I was looking at 汉字大字典 and found this character in page 2000.

enter image description here

I wanted to type that character in my computer. I used this page to look up the character through its radical (in radical 毛), but that character wasn't listed

How to type this character in my computer? I would appreciate you could share how you found this specific character.

  • It's right on that page. Aug 28 at 3:01
  • It depends on your IME. Not all IMEs allow you to input all Chinese characters. I don't think any IME would allow you to input all Chinese characters. Aug 28 at 3:02
  • @fatpenguin That's my question. Without knowing what the ping ying of that character is, how do I know where to find it ? The OP "look up the character through its radical (in radical 毛), but that character wasn't listed".

What I usually do is that,

(1) Open Google Keep (or other Apps).

(2) Take a photo of the page (or printed text).

(3) Extract the text. Many apps can extract text.

Unfortunately, Google Keep gives me everything on this page except this character 毛+昌 (on the hook).


To enter this character in Linux:

Press ctrl + shift + u together (just hold ctrl + shift, then press u)

Release them.

Enter the unicode number 23b91

Press space.

    How does this help, when the OP didn't know how to get the character (or its Unicode) at all?

    Well, if I were stuck, I would get the character by drawing, or use zdic.net like Mou used zisea above. Then, if I can't find the Unicode, I use Python ord('𣮑') which gives 146321. Express that as a hexadecimal number and you have the Unicode for '𣮑' ! Amazing, the Internet + Python!
