Alt. 0162 =

cent sign is included as an alternate character in MOST fonts...try it
</span></span>

I wonder the wisdom of typing [alt 0162] when it would be quicker to just put a line thru some chosen letter 'c'

I got fonts for ands & ampersands, but I've never seen one font just for just cents nor scents nor sinces....
Of course, there are many of the ole wingding fonts collections that may include a few cents....

hope that makes sense, ya just gotta sort thru your fonts to see if cents are included....

It's a cents finding ordeal for sure, when our world is mostly about &'s given the $'s going to and fro.....

yep i agree Jack...I've always fitted my cents from baseline to the height line of the price numbers....
doing a visual fit works best depending on the font choice....

More good info as one would expect from this place.

I woulda just made my own c with a line through it and had the job done.

Then I woulda missed all the learnin stuff here.

Thanks chaps.

Mind you, by the time I get all my leanin done, the c with the line through it's not gonna be worth much.



shud up lance go home............................. :rolleyes:

Pressing Option 4 on a Mac will get the cent sign.

Actually if you get the Character Map from the System Tools and print it out you will find many handy symbols. I think they need to be cut/pasted but just print the ones you think you will use the most such as:
Alt + 0162 =
'" "+ 0188 =
" 0189 =
" 0190 =
" 0174 =
" 0169 =
" 0153 =
" 0176 =
" 0163 =
" 0200 =
There are many more just look at what you may need, but remember to use the numerical pad on the right hand side of the keyboard.

Using a nifty little program like PopChar (free) can be a blessing. You can see the entire font and merely highlighting a character will put it in your clipboard.

Somewhat limited in use (you can't copy some characters) unless you register it but well worth it.

And if you use CorelDraw, the entire ASCII character chart is available by adding the "Insert Symbol Character" docker from the Text menu item. Those codes are valid Alt+# characters even if you aren't actually doing them inside of CorelDraw. You can just pop into that docker, select the character, note the code, and manually enter them in any other application.
