How to Insert Special Symbols


When you're working on documentation, you may need to insert special symbols that are not on your keyboard. ClickHelp has a special feature for this. Let's see how it works by taking an example - we need to insert a special symbol:

  • Place the text cursor where you want a symbol to be added to your topic. 
  • Go to the Insert tab of the editor's toolbar.
  • Click Symbol.

  • Then you'll see the following dialog where you find special symbols of different categories.

  • Just click a special symbol you need and it'll appear in your text.
  • Symbols that you've recently used will be added with keyboard shortcuts, so you can add a necessary symbol quickly. 

If you don't find the desired symbol, here is a list of Unicode characters where you find various symbols and their codes. To insert a symbol from the list, press and hold down ALT while typing the character code. You must use the numeric keypad to type the numbers.
