For documents, etc. in a MS environment, using WORD 2007, pls, how do I
construct the Square Foot character (square with a forward-leaning slash
There must be a way to create this character and place it in one of the
Fonts for both display and print (like maybe a new character to add to the
It'll show you the square with the ' in the center top. Google
Unicode glyph 23CD symbol. You'll probably get the above url.
Don't ask me how to get it installed in where ever you want it. :-)
You used to be able to hit ctrl-alt-### or something like that and
get a bunch of odd characters. Where ### represents the number of
the symbol. But that goes back to the DOS days???
I tried typing ctrl-alt-23CD inside Word to see what happened. The
ctrl-alt are the ctrl and alt keys held down while keying in the
other. Each time when the C was typed I had called up the ATI
Catalyst Control Center for controlling my video card!! The same
thing happened when I tried it in SeaMonkey composing this reply.
I do this in WordPerfect by using the overstrike feature to superimpose
a slash over a box from the extended character set, then superscripting
the pair. I then use QuickCorrect to automatically replace " sf " with
the superscripted pair.
Surely Word has some similar set of tools, but I use it as little as
possible so I don't know where they reside.
