gucharmap: I think you mean that you must double-click to add the
character to the 'text to copy' bar? Otherwise clicking on any character
selects that character. Rather than double-clicking (and I know of no
way to get the app to change), use the mouse to drag the character to
'Text to copy'. Not sure if that may be more difficult for you given
your disability, but it is an option if you did not know about it.

Zim-wiki: no clue as I've never used it.
