I am trying to make the (US) cent symbol on an iPad. The directions I found said to hold down the $ symbol and a mini-menu will appear that has the cent symbol. I tried that and all I got was the $ symbol. The iPad is using iOS 10.3.3.

Thank you.

Two possible solutions...

On a UK keyboard layout press the £ key on the first "page" of the two 123 displays. Similarly on the US layout the $ sign will be on that first page...

Trvir,

Thank you for your assistance. I toggled to the appropriate keyboard and pressed and held down the $ key. A pop-up menu appeared containing the cent symbol. However, when I took my finger off of the $ symbol, the pop-up closed so I was not able to press the cent symbol. Am I doing anything wrong?

mmm - the instructions on both the sites I linked could make that small point a little clearer. Sadly so many post how to (very useful) info - but forget that the reader may not always be as familiar with the subtleties involved...

A well written guide "assumes" nor "presumes" anything; and includes even the most obvious (to the writer and some of the readers) bits of information - each step of the way.

Aeons ago Ampex used to publish excellent manuals for their 2inch VTR machines; they omitted nothing, assumed/presumed nothing. Even included specifying which size tweaker/screwdriver to use in a given situation; and then reminding one to put it down before proceeding further - once that required tweak had been completed.. Many BBC manual were of similar style - but not all...

Sadly, most software user guides/manuals these days are nowhere as near as competently written...

Good rule of thumb: write as if to be read by an idiot with infinite intelligence; as he/she will do exactly what you have written, will follow the instructions to the letter... When written correctly he/she will do/duplicate exactly what you have written...; and thus get the same end results.

That was the first instruction I received from my Supervisor and Chief Chemist in a Research Lab aeons ago... His second was to ensure one's notebooks were kept current, up to date second by second if needs-be. This would allow "anyone" to repeat my work as required in the future. Likewise it would allow them to discover how "not" to end up dead on the floor where they might find me, when it all went wrong; as they would (intelligently) stop just before that point where I stopped recording my work/experiments/processes.

edited per trvlr to remove typo at start.
