    Default Degrees symbol in text

    Is there any way I can insert degrees symbol (for angles) in text. In AutoCAD it is a simply matter of typing%%D, however this doesn't seem to work in Revit. It works for angled dimensions.

    You can either copy and paste the symbol from Character Map....

    Or...

    Use Keystroke: Alt+0176

    Thank you Michael, you are a champion, something so simple I could kick myself. I searched the help documentation to no avail, however your second option worked a treat. I guess there are other secrets for the other %% symbols from AutoCAD that could be applied to Revit. I will certainly investigate these.

    Thank you very much for your assistance
