    Default Plus or Minus Sign

    Working with Reivit Structure:

    1. How to type the "Plus or Minus" sign ( a plus over a minus)?

    2. How to type "45-degree" (45 with a little Zero on the top right corner)?

    3. How to type "Greater or Equal"?

    If you're just typing it, you can often get special characters from the Windows character map. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories and I think it's in there or in System Tools.

    You can find the character you need and copy/paste, or type the keystroke combination.

    The degree symbol is Alt+0176, so hold down the Alt key while typing 0176 and the symbol will appear. So you would see 45°

    The plus/minus symbol is Alt+0177, so ± 5" However I typically just type +/- before the dimension.

    I don't believe there is a "greater than or equal to" symbol in the character map.

    May I add to double click the dimension text to add these to the dimension?
