I've googled this and searched on quite a few websites but no luck. I've read replies here about this but it didn't work for me or didn't provide the information I'm looking for. Please read carefully as what I'm asking is very specific.
I want to find a way to type radicals on their own. I discuss radicals with other learners and I want to be able to type them up not copy/paste them. I want to type in the characters in all their various positions as radicals. I also want the blank boxes to appear when I want to talk about a radical which is one the left or the right side. I'd like to use keyboard shortcuts/keystroke combinations to achieve that.
I'm on Windows 10 and I use the Japanese IME.
