    For the pipe |, while holding Fn, type \ then Space.
    For the underscore _, while holding Fn, type - then Space.
    For the open bracket [, while holding Fn, type ( then Space.
    For the close bracket ], while holding Fn, type ) then Space.
    For the +/- sign, while holding Fn, type + then Space.
    For the euro symbol, while holding Fn, type $ then Space.
    For the tilde, while holding Fn, type @ then Space.

    I tried this but had no success. Is this for the q9 or just the q?

    I tried the "l" trick on my original Q and got a "\" with a space after it!

    Nevermind it doesn't work in notepad but it does work in other places.

    Thank you DarkGemini!

    It works on the Q9 in messaging, but not in PIE
    *Scratch that, tried again and it does work in PIE, just let go of the first button while still holding Fn*

    Thanks for that incredibly useful tip. Actually, if you hit space multiple times it cycles through similar selections....i.e. holding down Fn and hitting (, then Space repeatedly will cycle through (, [,{,<,<<

    All those characters are available via the FN key

    Hold down the FN key then hit one of the slashes above the 'V' or 'B' then hold down the FN key again and press the space bar. The cursor will cycle through all your available characters. I found this extremely useful for the pipe | character. Also, QCaps doesn't work on any of the newer Qs. Enjoy your free ASCII characters.

    Hold down the FN key then press one of the slashes above either the 'V' or 'B' keys. Then while holding the FN key again press the spacebar to cycle through the available extra characters. The pipe character "|" is hidden behind the forward slash above the 'V'. Note that QCaps does not work for the newer Q9 models. Enjoy your free ASCII characters.
