Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2006 12:13 PM (in response to c_kyr)I recommend this Applescript:
do shell script "open /System/Library/Components/CharacterPalette.component/Contents/SharedSupport/Ch arPaletteServer.app"
Save it as "Application" to launch with a doubleclick. From the Applescript menu it can just be a compiled script.
You can also launch it from Terminal with just the shell command, if you go that way.Mac OS X (10.4.7)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2006 2:10 PM (in response to c_kyr)Thanks for your reply, but this is not what I am asking.
Let me rephrase my question.
I would like to have a shortcut for the degree symbol I am adding from the character palette, so that whenever I want to add it I won't have to open it. Instead, I would like to have a keyboard shortcut and when I press the keys combination add the degree symbol to my text.
Thanks again.MacBook 2GHz, Mac OS X (10.4.8)

Or you can make a text document with all your favorite special characters in it, which is what I do.Mac OS X (10.4.7)
