Delta symbol in Windows 7?

207 Views, 4 Replies

I've been using the standard "\U+0394" in Civil 3d for years to insert the delta symbol, but wanted to determine how to do it in Windows.  I've found plenty of how-to's on the web, but they seem to be for XP, not Windows 7.  These include Alt+0394 and Δ neither of which work in Word or Outlook.  BTW, I'm not interested in the filled symbol, just the open one.

 

Anybody know a way to do this?

 

Thanks

I apologize for the confusion - I left out an important key stroke for the Windows portion.

 

For getting the delta symbol in Word, Outlook, etc. type:

0394 then "Alt" and "x" together.

You can also get this symbol by going to the ribbon - "Insert" --> "Symbols" and scrolling.  At the bottom of the dialoque, you will see the shortcut keys.

It took me posting the question before the solution presented itself.

For Windows applications, use

0394 then Alt+

 

Works in Word and Outlook.
