Interesting Find - Symbol and Numbered Lists
While preparing for my course launch last week, I stumbled across an interesting find that I thought I'd share with the community.
I had a numbered list.
In one of the elements in this list, I used the symbol of "increase" as the first character.
In other elements the symbol of "increase" was used in the sentence but not as first character.
I published the file
FINDING = The symbol was all distorted when it was the first character in the numbered list. All other occurrences of this symbol were absolutely fine.
I was perplexed at this. Then I added "THE" in front of this symbol such that it was no longer the first character, and now it published just fine. (See image below & the attached powerpoint file).
So my lesson learned - Never use "SYMBOL" as first character in numbered lists.
Why did it happen - I do not know. Any ideas?
