Been trying to use the degree character from my character map. The DataCAD fonts aren't in my list. The Ariel font has the character number/hotkey of ALT-0176 which I understand is the right number. Well, when I copy and paste it, it shows up on my text line; although, when I press "enter", it doesn't show up on my screen. It's nowhere to be found. When I enter it direct with the hotkey, it misbehaves in the same way. Also, to add to the confusion, the manual has a different number like 0145, I think it is.
