    keystroke for °

    For anyone interested, holding down the alt key while pressing 0176 and releasing will generate the unicode that results in °.

    Once having entered that in a thread you can copy and paste it as an easier way of generating the character from that point on in a thread.

    Moved to General Discussion forum. In ½ the time it took you to post °.

    ► ¾ of the time, ¼ of the people won't remember which keystrokes you said to use. ◄

    Thanks for moving it. The original question was raised in this forum a while back.

    25% of 75% still means that a few might appreciate the thought.

    Put the ALT codes in a doc. And you can then paste them when you want them later.

    ° (Alt 0176) or º (Alt 167) either seem to work, the Alt 0176 looks a bit smaller.

    I don't have a number pad on my laptop so I can't get it to work.
    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.
