ThinkPad X250 Special Characters and Alt-codes without NumLk

Simply, I can't insert special characters using alt-codes. The ThinkPad X250 does not have a NumLock key and has no numpad. I've tested Fn+Alt using each Alt key and all the combinations of Fn and FnLk available in the bios and on the keyboard to no avail. Copy/Paste from the character map and inserting special characters in Word are cumbersome workarounds. I would greatly prefer to use alt-codes because it's more efficient for frequently inserting characters into formulas. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I cannot test this myself, but see if the solution at the end of this thread helps at all
