    Font with material thickness symbol

      Hi,

       

      My company draws to BS 8888 and I'm trying to find an easy way to include the thickness symbol in a drawing note.

      I know I can create a png image and insert this into drawing, but I can't insert it into the note, or even attach it to a specific view (so it moves when you move the view). It also behaves really weirdly with regards to selection and copy/paste.

       

      Ideally I'd like to find a font so I can insert it using the character map option in the Symbol Library dialog (which appears when you're editing a note or dimension, and click on Add Symbol then More Symbols).
