|I used to bring the character map up on the desktop and drag & drop symbols when needed. Not sure if that still is possible. I actually just had copies of the most used on the desktop so I didn't need to hunt.|
I just tried it and it still works. In the search box I typed Character map then click on the search result. Then select the most used characters and after you have a small list, copy and paste. You may be able to insert them into your program too.
I spoke too soon. Not able to paste to the desktop. I was able to paste into a text box in my CAD program.
