I need to create a great then and equal too, i was wondering if there what a symbol for that and if so how would i type it into a note.

 

Also I was wondering if there was a cheat sheet showing all the symbols with the short cuts for drafting

If you are using a true type font, you can use the Windows utility "character map" to copy & paste any character from the font you are using to your note.

 

Alternatively, you could use a greater than sign and format the note to underline that character. It will end up looking just like a "greater than or equal to" sign and works with any font.

I'm not sure what you mean by "how can we map it", but here is a quick rundown on the "character map" utility (assuming you are using a Windows OS):

  1. start menu -> search programs and files -> "character map"
  2. open the character map program, choose the desired font
  3. all of the available characters in that font will be shown in the listbox
  4. selecting a character will show you the keycode to enter it from the keyboard or double clicking it will copy it into the text box; from here you can copy & paste the text into other applications (such as NX).

And if you are using a "legacy" NX font (blockfont, etc.)

I have attached a file.

- open the file

- Select everything that is selectable (note the "headers" are on a layer that is visible but not selectable, this is intentional)

-> Style

- change to desired NX font

 

Note this only shows the legacy (ASCII + $ characters) not the full Unicode set (some fonts have Unicode characters)

- You can see what characters map to what symbols (in particular, the "$" characters)

Hi,

Try to use $<text> in NX drafting Annotation. It will reflect as <text>.
