Perhaps you know that WordPerfect offers an array of useful symbols. For example, to produce a section symbol, hold down the Ctrl key and press the letter "V", then type 4,6 and Enter. It works, but those number codes are very hard to remember.
A blessing: Some symbols have easy-to-remember codes. You still press Ctrl+V (for
"value"), but then type just two keys:
|To create this symbol||Press Ctrl+V then these 2 keys||Symbol name|
|®||ro||Registered trademark ®|
|½||/2||One half ½|
|¼||/4||One quarter ¼|
|·||*.||Small bullet ·|
|||- -||Em dash |
(These keystrokes work in WordPerfect for DOS version 5.0 and 5.1. For WordPerfect version 6.0, begin with Ctrl+W instead of Ctrl+V. Results will vary according to your printer's capabilities.)
