How Can I add special characters?

Hi,
How can I add specisl characters like arrows to the clips...
Thanks for help...

two options:
• add any Title, select a font containing 'arrows'
Hint: open System Prefs/Keyboard and check the box to show this icon in the menu bar:
You then easily select any arrow to your 'Title' ...
Unfortunately, there's no 'free to place anywhere on screen'-title
• Plan B)
follow advice about the 'transparent.png'-trick
How to create a pointer or a custom title

  • How can I display special characters of NonEuropean languages (French, Italian, Spanish, German and Portuguese.) using import string mechanism

    I would like to translate the User Interface of my application to French, Italian, Spanish, German and Portuguese.
    When I put special characters in the import string file they showed up as ? (question mark)
    The import strings file includes the following parameters for each string: font, text, size and style. (but no field for script)
    In order to use a unicode font such as Arial I need to select a french script. But this option is not supported bu LabView (As far as I saw)
    A) Is there a font which is directly German/ French etc and not regula font + script parameter?
    B) Are there another required step
    s for special characters support? (When I put speciual characters in the import string file the showed up as ? question mark)

    This was discussed last week in this group- read the previous messages.
    Look for the thread "Foreign Languages in Labview"
    And recite the mantra
    ActiveX is good
    ActiveX is holy
    All Hail Bill
    Those who claim otherwise are heretics and not to be trusted
    Actually, in this case the non-ActiveX suggestions may be good.

  • How can I distinguish special characters or signs in Doc through VBA?

    How can I distinguish special characters or signs in Doc through VBA?
    I have a few large documents written in word 2003 format and now I work on them under word 2007.
    Such large documents containing lots of special characters.  I want to change them into Microsoft 3.0 equation form(It is required by the team). I find no way but using function AddOLEObject and  Sendkeys through VBA. Common characters can be added
    to equation by function Sendkeys, but the return value of Asc() or AscW() for "double arrow", "in" , " not greater than " such special characters or signs, to name but a few are the same ,i.e., 40 And I cannot distinguish them.
    I found the link http://msdn.itags.org/word/44333/ may be of use to me, and the title is:
    How to read symbols from a DOC documents! (Microsoft Word)
     the original question is
    Using function "InsertSymbol", I can insert a symbol into a document. But
    how can I read a symbol from a document?
    Using "Characters(i).range.text", I can read a char. But when meeting a
    symbol, the value of "Characters(i).range.text" is always '('.How can I get the CharacterNumber of the symbol.
    And the final answer is :
    Hi chenfeng,
    Word protects symbols from symbol fonts if you insert them from the "Insert
    > Symbol" dialog.
    This is done so they aren't changed when you change the font or style. But
    it also results in Word reporting AscW( ) = 40 on all of them.
    I've posted a macro to "unprotect" them (or to protect them again if you
    want) ... just today again in

    Can anyone with kindness help me? Thaks a lot.

    Following Cindy Meister's Advice ,I use MathType SDK.
    The sample in MathType SDK in the following may be meaningful,but I do not know how the MTEF for cos^^2Theta, MTEF for sin^^2Theta and MTEF for 1 are generated .
    It looks much complicated,and I searched the docs in MathType SDK to get a explanation.Is there any function to generate them? I want to use this method to change commaon text mathematical signs( in special character table) and  Greek letters and characters
    with subscripts and superscripts to Microsoft 3.0 equation form.

  • How do you add special Characters???

    Does anyone know how to add special characters like accents to words in pages '08???

    There are several other threads that deal with this in detail.
    On the Mac since almost day one, most of the accents are created by first typing option plus one of the vowels/consonants, followed by the vowel/consonants to which the accent is added. Some are direct alternatives, try them and see what they do.
    eg
    *Indirect accents*
    option e plus e = é also á, é, í, ó, ú
    option i plus e = ê also î, â, ô, û
    option u plus e = ë, ï, ä, ü, ö
    option n plus n = ñ
    *Direct accents*
    option a = å
    option o plus e = ø
    option c = ç
    option s = ß (now obsoleted)
    option w = ∑ (because it looks like a sideways w)
    option f = ƒ
    option t = †
    option v = √ (square root character, which looks like a v)
    etc
    I have always marvelled at the common sense approach that Apple used compared with the way the Windows programmers did it.

  • How do I add special characters from my favorites to text?

    I have the new version of Numbers 3.5.  In previous versions if I wanted to add foreign language symbols to the text, I only had to click my mouse from the "special characters" and it was added to the word I was typing.  Today I am not able to use my Spanish vocabulary because I cannot add the necessary symbols.  How do I use this feature in my document text?

    Input from the Character Viewer normally requires double-clicking or drag/drop.
    The special characters needed for spanish are also available by just holding down the key for the base letter.  If you hold down the n key, you should get a popup menu where you can choose ñ.
    There are also option key shortcuts for such letters.  Option n then n will give you ñ.

  • Where can I add special characters?

    I see discussions about adding special characters but do not know how to do this. I have some titling with foreign alphabets. Can you help? Using educational version of FCP purchased in 2004. Thanks.

    Here's the illustrated version:
    Let's set this up:
    That was pretty easy, let's now put it into use:
    Here is the Character Palette. Double clicking a glyph will place it into your text document or a text entry box in any application.
    The Keyboard Viewer. Press the physical keys on your keyboard to diplay the location of accented glyphs. Take note and use what you have learned by pressing the approprite key combination.
    With the Alt (Option) modifier key held:
    Lastly with Shift/Alt:
    There are also other modifier key combinations that will reveal more glyphs.

  • How can I enter special characters in a text title?

    Hello to all!
    Have been trying to get in a special character [the tick mark] onto a text title on my current project. Had gone to the special character option under EDIT menu, and added the desired special character to the 'favourite' list, but after that I do not know how to move ahead. Would like help.
    Thanks to all.
    Dr. Somanna

    Thank you for your reply.
    However I am afraid that neither double click nor drag/drop is adding the character to the text.
    Is there any other method to get special characters into FCPX?

  • How can I find special characters in a string

    Hi,
    I have a small task where I have to find special characters in a given string, Can anyone suggest.......................

    What is your definition of a "special character", could you be a bit more specific?
    Do you simply want to find the position of a specific character in the string?
    Can it occur more than once and you want to find all occurences?
    What should happen if the special character does not exist?
    For programming purposes, all 256 possible 8 bit characters (x00-xFF) can be treated the same. Non-printing characters can be entered in \-codes or hex display if needed.

  • How can I remove special characters from spreadsheet filename?

    Hi
    Having a spreadsheet filename coded (on the Report Attributes page) as &VARIABLE..csv works fine unless the VARIABLE contains special characters such as space, lt, gt and so on.
    In the case of space, it is replaced by %20 in the generated filename. Is it possible convert the %20s to underscores (or remove them)?
    thanks
    Trevor

    Trevor,
    I would use a computation on that page to alter the value of variable, perhaps a SQL Expression such as:
      replace (:VARIABLE, ' ', '_')Alternatively, look at the process that puts the value into VARIABLE in the first place and ensure no spaces &gt;, etc are assigned.

  • How can I type special characters on bootcamp?

    Hello,
    I try to find a way to type specials caracters on windows that I used to type on my PC with the combination ALT+XXXX where X are numbers. I have search here (https://discussions.apple.com/message/17571606#17571606 https://discussions.apple.com/message/12157759#12157759) and on the net but I'm still not able to type them.
    Does anyone has found a solution to this?
    I know that I can use the caracter table embedded in windows but that's not very convenient when you need to regularly type special caracters.
    I have a MBP retina with Win7 x64 on bootcamp.
    Thank you

    For Wondows, see THIS web page for the ALT codes.
    For Mac, see THIS web page for the character pallette.

    Hi, I wonder how can I add special characters like the one in the "Edit" menu for the Mac versions? Thanks.

    It all depends what exactly you are talking about, so if you tell us, someone can help you. Some can be made from the keyboard, others you would need to copy/paste from an app like Unicode Map.

  • How to add special characters like üöä to a rss feed?

    Hello,
    I've (again) a small problem. In my podcast I use the header
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <rss version="2.0"
        xmlns:content="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/content/"

    >
    and encoding UFT-8. Every time I add special characters like the German Ö Ä or Ü to my feed, the feed stops working. The validator says that characters like üöä are no UTF-8 characters which is correct of course, but a second podcast which I listen to, uses the same header like I do but it contains the same special characters and it works. Does anyone know what the difference is?
    This is my podcast feed which does not work with üöä

    http://technikwuerze.de/feed/
    Thank you very much
    Kind regards

    http://quartett.planeteternia.org/newsfeed.xml - there is no file at this address. You have a feed at
    http://quartett.planeteternia.org/rssfeed.xml
    but there are no diacriticals in it - presumably you've removed them.
    The other feed simply includes the diacriticals - it's not using html encoding to display them - so I don't know why you should be having trouble. You need to be writing the text in a plain text editor, not a word processor, and I don't know whether there is an issue with Windows here.
    You could try using the codes - they must be the numbered not the named codes:
    ü is &#252;
    ö is &#246;
    ä is &#228;
