Using icons or symbols in text or numbered list blocks in Rise360

Mar 28, 2020


I am creating my first Rise360 course and am using text blocks and numbered lists to show step by step instructions for a software application.   The software application uses some icons and/or symbols in its UI and I would like to use those in the written instructions so its easy to follow and mirrors the software UI.   (I am also using screencast videos to show the steps but each is followed by written step by step so the learner can watch and then follow the written instructions.) 

Is there any way to do this?

Thanks very much!

Hi there, Deb!

There are a few ways you can insert symbols in a Rise 360 text block:

  • Search for the symbol on this website: Copy the symbol, then paste it in the text block.
  • Copy the symbol from a Word document, and paste it in the text block.
  • Open the emoji keyboard, and the third tab in on the emoji keyboard has symbols.
    • For Windows, press and hold Windows key + Period (.) to open the emoji keyboard.
    • For Mac, press and hold Control + Command + Spacebar to open the emoji keyboard. 

Let me know if one of those options works for you!
