I can’t figure out how to type the little degree symbol when typing in coordinates. I binged it and it said to hold down the alt button and type 0172, or something like that. I can’t make it work on the computer and I can’t find the alt button on my phone. Really annoying. Suggestions?
I know on the iphone, you hold down on the zero digit.
If you’re using Windows - the third option works easiest.
° or you can cut and paste that one
Never knew that! Great tip @Infinity
I have a Caterpillar Android. I don’t think it has an alt key. I gave up on the house computer. I have typed that 1076 thingy over and over with no luck.
It took a month to find the percentage sign on here
You can create your own keyboard shortcuts on your phone for stuff like this:
For example, on my phone I have a shortcut made for the ∞ symbol. I type “inf” and it’s automatically changed to that symbol. I also have one for my text signature. I type in “sig” and I get:
“Thank you, Alex Lacey ∞ cleaning cleanvt.com”
I have to add the carriage returns myself, but it’s a big time saver.
I can’t find the degree sign to make a shortcut. This text to my brother after the football championship sums up my knowledge of football, pop culture and technology
If someone will post a degree sign for me to copy maybe I can make a shortcut to it
Doot di doo
Thank you I think I got it saved to clipboard.
Well that’s one problem solved!
…to a certain degree.
I don’t know i why it would have been so hard to put the symbol on the key pad. I have this ñ beside the l on my phone that serves no purpose whatsoever.
I’ve been typing “deg” for years until now.
Granted, we all use § ₽ ₩ daily, but an easy to find °?
Nooooo. Ha ha.
My brother and I send coords to each other when we find a good hunting spot or place on the river to check out. I just send him a screen shot of Google map or a picture of my GPS. He has some way of sending me a little thumbtack on a map. Makes it easier for me than him for sure. He has a degree button on his phone so he writes down the cords and types them in.
I’m scrolling thru looking for the emblems you posted and see that my space bar switches me from English to Spanish on the keyboard. That explains the n with the squiggle over it
Android is foreign to me, as Apple might be to you. Holding my space bar makes my keyboard into a little track pad, like a mouse - so I can go back and edit mistakes easily. I only found this out recently too. I wonder what else is hidden in there!
