Inserting Type Symbols

"QWERTY" keyboards don't include many of the symbols needed for engineering documents, such as the degree symbol, Greek letters, etc., so the program allows you to insert these from a dialog. Choosing Edit > Insert Type Symbol while entering for a boring or other source, or pressing function key F9 while editing a report form displays the Insert Type Symbol dialog.

If you're exporting your data to an AutoCAD .DXF file, keep in mind that most CAD programs can't handle symbols inserted from this dialog.
