Is it possible to insert the degree symbol in Rise?
you can insert any symbol into rise using alt codes . the alt code for degree symbol is 248°
First, thank you for responding.
I have a laptop that does not have a keypad.
I tried all the online directions and nothing has worked. I know that the code is to hold down the alt key and press 0176. I also tried the num lock prior to alt key 0176.
I tried your numbers as well. alt 248 does not work.
Please, in case I have not found the correct step by step directions, please provide them to me.
I also found directions that tell me to make sure the numLock is on and if there is no keypad, press and hold the Fn before typing the 0176. This also did not work.
I don't know what to tell you then. I just tried in rise and it worked for me, see screenshot.
It just occurred to me what you were saying about not having a number pad, so I tried using alt + numbers on keyboard and the degree symbol wouldn't show up (see screen capture). Strange. No idea. Can you get and plug in to your laptop a keyboard with a number pad?
I do not have one but that was my next go to. I will need to borrow one. Just never had to use symbols lately. The other thing is to try the character map. Thanks. I really appreciate your letting me know that you tried without the keypad. Good work. :-)
The character map worked! How about that!
Thanks for jumping in and helping here :)
I just thought I'd point out that when you respond directly from your email, your signature is appended to the message. You may want to pop in there and edit out any personal information that you don't want to share with the community.
wow, thanks for letting me know. is there a way to turn that off?
Unfortunately, there's no way to turn that off because it's related to your email client and not to E-Learning Heroes. I would just make sure and delete your signature whenever you reply directly from your email or click on View to see the thread on E-Learning Heroes and reply there instead.
I hope that makes sense! Let me know if you have any other questions.
got it. thanks!
Sure thing :)
Hi Lavon -
Could you explain Character Map? I'm trying to insert a degree symbol as well and are experiencing the same issue.
Are you on a pc or Mac?
If you are on a PC.
Bottom left of your tool bar Start menu. Click, it opens, click all programs, find Accessories. now look for system tools. There you will find Character Map. Look in times font and locate the degree symbal. select it then select and copy the symbol. Place your cursor where you want to insert it and click "ctrl V" to paste it. That should do it.
