This is the correct subject: Cannot find the diameter symbol in the "Special Characters" area versus "Cannot find the Degree symbol" Sorry about the screw up.

It's Unicode 00B0 just about a line after the standard English alphabet.

Mr Tucker,

Thanks for your reply but I don't know where 00B0 is nor where the standard English alphabet is in Open Office.org writer.

It's nowhere in Writer, it's in the Insert - Special characters dialog box. Think.
Hint: 7th row, far right character on my system.

The diameter symbol is Unicode U+2300.



It is not in all fonts. A list of fonts containing it is here:
