anyone know how to put in a pro-e symbol ie diameter symbol into a parameter which is used on the format ie title description etc. I onced stumbled across, purely by accident, a keyboard shortcut to input them but have forgotten how to access it. Using WF2
cheers, I know that. It's adding a symbol from the symbol palette that I want to do. You know the symbols box that appears when you add a note. The title for my part is 0.5dia x 0.5lg screw but I want the dia symbol in front of the description parameter in the format. Like I said, one time I stumbled over a keyboard shortcut that took you into entering symbols ie d was dia something else was degrees but cant reproduce the key setting I pressed to get there.
I've read all the replies above and see that you've got the answer that you were looking for with the Cntl-A --- Cntl-B solution. What I don't understand is why you weren't seeing a "Symbols Table" come up when you were creating the parameter note and trying to add a diameter symbol??
When I create a note in WF2, using INSERT -- NOTE -- MAKE NOTE, and then click the screen where I want the Note to be placed, a "Symbols Table" pops up showing 35 different graphical symbols that are available to add to the Note by simply clicking on the appropriate one you want to add. I think these probably relate to the same symbols that you would get if you used the Cntl-A --- Cntl-B process and then inserted the appropriate character in between.
I'd like to understand why this couldn't be the answer to your original question. Maybe I didn't understand it. If you have the time, could you reply here. Thanks... I'm relatively new to ProE and have lots to learn.
jtma67 and yx2002. The symbols box didn't appear because I'm typing the note as a parameter on the format or as a parameter in the part which will later appear in the format. I've used the ctrl a n ctrl b method and it works fine. (WF2)
