Just hold down alt and type in 251, and it will show a √ just like the old days.
Two choices. If you have a full keyboard, you can use the ALT+251, using the numbers on the number pad. (It might require 0251 - I don't remember, and don't have a full-size keyboard.) If not, you can open Character Map (a standard Windows utility) and get it there.
Hold down the Alt key and enter the desired ASCII value. You can find lookup table with a quick search.
If you knock off TKD with savate it might overlap better. I think they partially based the boxing off English boxing. That is if you can find one. Just my partial ramblings it might fit better than TKD. Or look at the other kind of kickboxing styles out there.
√ Yep (from the keypad, not the top of the keyboard)
Alt+251 √ (from number pad)
Alt+0251 û Guess not.
From the number keys at the top of the keyboard -
From the number keys on the number keypad - √
Thanks guys. √
@Buka You have brought up some good answers for a solution to yours and no doubt other members question on this important subject. However, since you have not come back in and acknowledged your understanding of these important insights, you are hereby sentenced to write √ 100 times on your next entry in MT.
As for myself, for being partly wrong and partly correct in my answer, they cancel out and I don't have to write √ on my next entry.
@Buka, I might have this code wrong, but I think you can get a heavy check mark on Linux (if it's using something called Gnome, and I have no idea why the hell you'd have a gnome in your Linux box) by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+U then 2714. If that produces something else, then I got everything right except the number, making my post somewhat informative and absolutely useless.
Yeah, except what you've got there is a square root symbol, not a tick (check mark)...
Alt+251 = square root symbol √
Alt+0252 = tick/check mark ✓
OK, you got me. I should have cleaned my glasses better.
Because I cannot get the check mark with Alt+0252. It produces ü instead.
Thanks guys. I wish I was on my laptop instead of my phone. If I was I’d check mark my brains out.
Which would only take a couple checks.
I resemble that remark.
Did you try without the 0? Windows Character Map used to show the "ALT+" number codes, but no longer does.
Yes, I did.
In Martial Talk, Alt+250 = ⁿ
and Alt+-0252 = ü
The same in LibreOffice.
I don't have the Windows Suite on my computers at home.
I'll have to get out my external keyboard and see what I can discover.
