Many thanks for the link to the meanings. The symbol I'm asking about --two dots above one dot--means because.
I'm looking for the code to use in transcribing.
My best to you too,
The codes are:
- Alt+8756 for therefore/hence ( ∴ )
- Alt+8757 for because ( ∵ )
However, to use them:
- it only works if you have a number pad on your keyboard
- the interface you are typing into must both accept the code and has a corresponding font available
For example, neither of the BTP transcription interfaces accept the codes, and produces a 4 and a 5 respectively. In Word, though, they both work correctly.
Alternatively, the Unicode is 2234 for ∴ , and 2235 for ∵ . Again, these work in Word (by typing the code, then pressing Alt+X – no need for the number pad), but not here.
I cut and pasted the examples from Word. This means there is a compatible font here, but not a proper interpreter for the codes. It's frustrating, but my best advice is unfortunately to continue to copy and paste as needed. I have been doing it like this for some time in apps where I can't just type them either way.
