Mac keyboard shortcut for special characters
I stumbled upon some special characters available at arm’s length while writing my Brainstorm on downloading a map in the woods.
You can find all sorts of symbols by pressing
⌃⌘Space and scrolling down past the emojis:
- Nice symbols for bullet point alternatives, like
- Handy things you might actually use with some frequency, like
- Keyboard icons, like the command key
⌘that I used above
- Random characters, like chess pieces
🂡, and dice
I use this keyboard shortcut most often for emojis, but these special characters are a fun Easter egg.
