I'm hoping to tap into the talented IT guru demographic of the forum for some advice! How does one insert symbols into text documents in Apple MacOS and iOS using the equivalent keyboard codes commonly used in MS Windows and Linux? Below are three examples for those who aren't familiar with ASCII codes: Alt + 0183 produces a decimal point · Alt + 0215 produces a multiply symbol × Alt + 0176 produces a degree symbol ° Substituting a full stop and the twenty-fourth letter of the alphabet for the first two is not an option for me, sadly. I've had a dig around the interweb and the so-called 'Genius' at Exeter Apple Store scratched his head and also searched but only found references to the 1940's wireless entertainer Arthur Askey. Any help appreciated. Cheers.
