How to use "Special Characters" in Text ...

Postby Husky » Thu May 01, 2014 8:45 am

Hi,

I tried to use "Special Characters" in Text and also for Geometry Labeling in the Property Editor - but I always get only a Question mark instead of the Special Symbol :cry: ...

What is the trick to get my Symbols? e_surprised

Hi Husky

Try using a different font type!
For the best support please state your operating system, QCAD version and add any supporting DXF/DWG files, screenshots etc...

You can use this tool Cool Symbol Picker to choose as many special symbols and characters as you want.
