Alt-097 is simply the character lower-case ‘a’. Enter it, highlight it and then set it to the symbol font (using the character designer preferably!) and it will show you what you want. Z From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of

Hi Nancy, If you look closely at the table, you'll see that the alpha symbol appears in the Symbol font column. In other words, Adobe/Frame is advising that you enter ANSI 097 (for a) and apply the Symbol font. So you understood just fine, you just missed the last step. At the end of the week,

Where did you get that 097 code point? Decimal 097 (hex 0061) is actually the code point for a Latin lower-case a, and perhaps the instruction you cite assumed that you would format the character as Symbol font, which maps the Greek alphabet to the corresponding Latin alphabet code points and

Hi, all.Well, life turned out to be simpler than I'd feared.(Syed, I didn't get the result you describe. As you stated, Alt-097 produces a lowercase a (in Arial, anyway). When I switch it to Symbol, I got a small uppercase A in what looks like a serif font.)However, I copied and pasted my source

Are you sure there's an alpha in the font you're using? You can inspect it with Windows' Character Map utility. It will indicate the key sequence to type it in the status bar. If you're using a Unicode font, 097 is wrong. Use one of the methods documented here:
