Entering and editing in Japanese


Where can Japanese characters be used

Japanese characters can be entered and edited in:
  • General memory names
  • General memory Descriptions
  • PMS memory names


    Which characters can be entered in memory names

    The characters that can be entered in memory names are listed in the Japanese radio model's user guide and have been chosen by Yaesu. The only exceptions are double-quotation ("), comma (,) and semi-colon (;) which can be used as separator characters in .CSV files

    When entering non-Japanese letters, numbers and symbols in memory names please use half-width ASCII characters.

    When entering Japanese characters in memory names please use full-width Katakana characters.


    Which characters can be entered in memory descriptions

    Any characters can be entered in memory descriptions, including Kanji.  The only exceptions are double-quotation ("), comma (,) and semi-colon (;) which can be used as separator characters in .CSV files

    Entering characters using the keyboard

    First select the cell you wish to edit by clicking with the mouse or moving the selection cursor using the arrow keys. Then type normally using the IME (input method editor). When you press the final Enter key the program checks what you have typed. 

    If any of the entered characters are not in the set supported by the program then you will get a message telling you which one is not acceptable. To make corrections press function key F2 or double-click the cell to place the cell into Edit mode and then use the normal editing keys (delete, backspace etc.) to make changes. Press Enter after completing your changes and the cell is again checked.

    To cancel any editing before the program has accepted the changes press the Escape key.


    Entering characters using copy/paste

    Characters can also be entered using copy/paste. First copy the characters you wish to enter from another location. Then place the destination cell into Edit mode by double-clicking or pressing F2. Position the cursor to where you want to insert the characters and then use Paste (CTRL+V). Then press Enter to complete the editing.
