  • Creating the Ω Symbol in messages/discussions . . .

    Try using ALT Codes to insert the Omega (Ohms) symbol:

    NumLock = ON, ALT 234 = Ω


    Using n, or R is confusing.

    Thanks & Happy New Year.

    You don't need to press number lock, just use the number keys to the right of the board. The special character appears after you release the alt key. Alt 230 gets you µ. Here's more: https://tools.oratory.com/altcodes.html

          What keyboard standard does your OS use, DeZZar?

        Yeah, I COULD (and in a "perfect" (MS?) world I would), but there're too many OSes that don't like "standard" non-std. ASCII characters (>127). Heck, I get e-mails all the time (mostly from "i-"(Apple)platforms) where quotes generate a string of gobbledy-****.
        (Used to use ¼ and ½ all the time - until I wised up.)

        MANY resistors use the "R" right on their printed casings. In Europe they use a comma instead of a decimal point. These are just things you need to learn. Typically I'll identify mine (the 1st time in a thread) like 10n(ohm). LOL, right?

          What use are "Standards" if no-one uses them?

        ASCII has a different meaning than you antipodeans use, obviously . . .



        Is there an "Australian Standard Code for Information Interchange"?

          Dude, take no offense - you ALWAYS give great direction and a top notch poster here.

          I'm lazy. I just open another tab, hit the mic, state what I'm looking for and copy and paste.
          Thanks,
