RE: How to post like a pro - Complete guide to Markdown formatting

in #markdown2 years ago

What are the best ways to embed symbols not found on standard keyboards? I know on Windows, I can use the alt key and the number pad to fill a lot of these needs. Linux so far does not seem to offer that kind of functionality, although I admit I have not delved very deep. At any rate, it might be a useful follow-up if you want to write it before I get around to it myself.

Each platform usually has a tool for entering in symbols.

Like on Windows there is the Character Map Tool

Mac OS has a character palette


On Linux, there are multiple character map tools depending on the desktop you are using.

For example, GNOME.
