I need to insert a less than or equal to symbol into a drawing and don't know how to do that.
Thanks in advance.
Try: Accessories\System Tools\Character map -> click on the symbol-> select>copy> paste-in-a-note
A clarification: this needs to be in a note.
In your note you can insert this by pushing the Alt key and key the number using your keypad.
Sorry, but that method isn't working. No input shows when I do that simultaneously.
I don't understand, this works for almost any program.
Just for clarity, the ALT-### is only available if you have a numeric keypad in most cases. It doesn't work from the number row at top of the keyboard. As such, ALT method is typically not available on Laptops. However, using the Character Map is typically a better way to go since you can visually see what you will be inserting.
Wow! Thank you Matthew Lorono
I never knew that and I expect many others didn't either.
I have had times in the past where I told someone how to use the Alt-### method and it didn't work for them and this is probably why.
Again I learn something new on the forum
I have a numeric keypad that I plug into a laptop that dosn't have one and it works. The number keys at the top have never worked.
As Tony Cantrell said, you can use the ASCII symbol
To do this you would create a note as you usually would but instead of entering a character (letter or number) you hold down the Alt key on the keyboard and then enter the code for the symbol you want from the chart that Tony attached.
In this case holding Alt plus entering 243 with produce the symbol ≤ - That is what I did here to enter the "≤".
In the same way, if you want to enter the ± symbol you would hold the Alt and type 0177.
I have to go out. When I get back I will try with another keyboard.
Thank you Rick,
"Alt plus entering 243" works for me.
You can use the inbuilt character map.
There is also the possibility here that the font you are using doesn't contain this character.
