I am quite conversant with Unicode keystrokes (Alt+XXXX) for most symbols in fact I have a cheat that aids me in the correct character code.
If I don't have the code I just copy it from the character map and paste it into the sentence but it gets a little tiresome after a while searching the character map for symbols.
I have on numerous occasions lately had the need to to insert the 'THEREFORE' symbol (You know the 3 dots in a triangle) into text notes on my drawings.
This symbol only seems to have a code "U+2234"
I have spent a lot of time searching everywhere for a clue as to what this keystroke sequence means.
A great many people I have found have asked the same question and all the replies just seem to dance around the question without just giving a straight instructional explanation.
I have my font style set to "Arial Unicode MS"
Can someone enlighten me on the correct keystroke sequence for "U+XXXX"?
This took me a little research to get right, but it works as follows:
1. Type 2234 in your input box
2. With the cursor at the end of the 2234, press ALT + X
That should do it, hitting ALT + X again should turn it back to the numeric value.
