I recently found this website which lists thousands of different alt codes.

 

I know I find it useful to find the code I would like and simply copy/paste into Revit where needed.

 

Thought someone might be interested so I thought I'd share it on here:

That is a very long list to go through, i'm not sure if my favorites where there.

Common ones I use are

• = ALT0149

 

Ø = ALT0216

ø = ALT0248

I have no memory for this kind of stuff so I use the built in CHARMAP and cut and paste.

Remember, these codes don't work for all Font styles.  Charmap will show you all the fonts you have loaded.

Hey guys,

 

What I have done in the past is if I come across an alt code which I regularly use (like the degree symbol as an example) I have written it down and pinned it to my pinboard on my desk to refer back to as often as I need rather than needing to always go back to the website.

 

Over time I have found I am using these codes so often that I have actually memorised most of the ones we use in our documentation.

 

WWHub you are correct that not all alt codes will work, however I thought this website was a great starting point to narrow down the alt codes I required and maybe to be useful to any other revit users who were looking for a list of common alt codes.

 

Correct me if I'm wrong but in the past I think we have also referred back to microsoft word in the symbols for any other alt codes we couldn't find elsewhere.

raja,

Have you ever even looked at the built-in charmap program?

Simply click on the start and in the search window type charmap.  It will show you all of the characters available for each font.

WWHub, I didn't know about this Charmap until you have just mentioned it now.

 

Thankyou for passing that information on as I wasn't aware this type of program existed. I did notice it is very similar to how the Microsoft word symobl dialogue box is set up, which is what we have only known to use in the past.
