shortcut key for degree symbol

My new best friend (who I haven't actually met) figured out how to type the degree sign!! This helps a lot since I type up a decent amount of recipes.

The secret is holding down Alt and typing 0176.

Here's her post on the degree sign.

I love Works for me Wednesday!

  6. Doesn't work for me either - tried it just after "either" - just nothing. What do you mean by "option 0" Grace?
    I notice none of those who claim it works has actually included it in their posts - or is it just part of some editor application?
