Alt Symbols

 

Many of these symbols are just a click away in our cookbook software.

To use one of these symbols, you have two options:

Option A:
1. Click in front of the symbol you want.
2. Drag across it.
3. Right click and select "Copy"
4. Go into where you want to use the symbol and hit "Paste".

Option B:
1. You must have a full size keyboard with a number pad on the right.
2. Make sure the Num Lock key (typically near the number pad) has been activated.
3. While holding down the Alt key, type in the numbers next to symbol on the below chart.
4. Let go of the Alt key and the number will appear.

5. Example: To make the symbol ©, hold down the Alt key, press 0169 on the number pad.

This does not work using the numbers across the top of a keyboard.

It must be a number pad.

Use the Recipe Builder from withing Matilda's Fantastic Cookbook Software to easily insert symbols.

 

Recipe symbols, including degrees, fractions (1/2, 1/4, 3/4) and other symbols

Example: To make the symbol ☺, hold down the Alt key, press 1 on the number pad.
