Techie stuff...
« on: July 22, 2014, 03:17:27 PM »

Question for all you computer geeks out there...


How do you get to type the little o after a number when you want to put 22 degrees? I've tried and tried, and I'm naffed if I can find out to do it...I've tried my laptops(both of them), my iPad, my reasonably intelligent supposedly smart phone, with no success. There must be a way...


Over to you.

in word you can use the insert symbol to add that, or you can edit the font and change the 0 to superscript (makes it smaller and puts it above normal text height) ⁰ < or you can copy the one I have put in here and paste it into your text

on a phone you would have to press the symbol key and select it (though on my phone that is a symbol that's missing).

You have to have the Num Lock ON to do this.

On the keypad go into number mode (.?123 button) press and hold the 0 key and slide you finger up to the deg symbol

iPad is great if you can live with some of the limitations.... Have to say I love mine, great for the daily commute. Mine is 3G so can browse the web, watch a bit of TV, or shoot something lol
