Is there a way to view the Unicode value of a given character in a document?

Often I’ll have a text or other documents with characters I don’t recognize as part of the Latin 2 alphabet. I’d like to see the actual Hex (Unicode) value for that character. For example: I’d like to position the cursor over the character then enter some key sequence or pull down and click on a menu and see the Hex value of that character. Can that be done and if so, how?

Mac OS 10.15.1 Catalina
Fonts used all support Unicode
Keyboard set to Unicode

Use Alt+X

… or Alt+C in some (at least de) locale, isn’t it?

Exactly :slight_smile:

For me it’s Alt+X (Win10 de; LibO with UI en-UK, locale en-UK))
(The blinker must be immediately behind the respective character.)

Same modified key pressed after entering the 4-Hexdigit-unicode converts it to the character. It’s a toggle key.
