While using the Automagica package to automate processes using Python, I have run into an unexpected issue.

I cannot type unicode characters using this tool.

from automagica import *

PressHotkey('win','r')

Wait(seconds=1)

Type(text='notepad', interval_seconds=0)

PressKey('enter')

Wait(seconds=2)

Type(text='Hello æ ø å ', interval_seconds=0)

The æøå characters are not typed, the spaces are though.

Could it be a keyboard layout issue? The function description states that only character keys can be used, but here in Denmark the stated characters are such keys

The issue is in pyautogui that does not support special characters

here is my solution

 

from automagica import *

def type_unicode(text):
    import pyautogui
    import pyperclip
    pyperclip.copy(text)
    pyautogui.hotkey("ctrl", "v")

PressHotkey('win','r')
Wait(seconds=1)
Type(text='notepad', interval_seconds=0)
PressKey('enter')
Wait(seconds=2)
type_unicode('Hello æ ø å')
