Dots / symbols

Good afternoon again.

My client wants to have “diamonds” between his name and address in the footer line.
This is an HTML box. How do you do that or the stars in the middle not just at the top?

Thanks

Julie

Not sure what you mean by ‘stars in the middle’

********

The HTML code for an asterisk is & #42; (take out the space after the ampersand) but you can just type Shift-8 ******

Diamonds :diamonds::diamonds::diamonds::diamonds::diamonds::diamonds:

are & diams; (same trick)

:spades: & spades;

:clubs: & clubs;

:heart: & hearts;

The hearts, diamonds etc you will need to use in an Insert Markup container in your run of text

So I put:

:diamonds::diamonds::diamonds::diamonds::diamonds::diamonds:

In a markup item in the HTML words ?

A run of text with flashing cursor - insert Markup item - type in your &diams - then OK - and preview.

Try & middot; (close up the space inside). That should be a “small
bullet” character. Try googling HTML entities – you should get some
incredible long lists of options like this. And if you really want
crazy selection, you need to look up some Unicode characters. Those
can be nearly anything as there’s thousands of glyphs in each Unicode
font, and automatic substitution if the font in use doesn’t include
that character.

Just picked up on this thread - as always looking to learn something new from you, Walter - and for small, centred dots I use Alt + 8 (main keyboard, not number pad) and this seems to work fairly universally, in that nobody’s ever told me otherwise or said the • • • • • •s are missing. Easy to style for colour and point size, too.
