Hi, am just starting a proofreading course so am navigating my way around Acrobat Reader DC for the first time. I am using the commenting tools in the pdf to correct text, but within that I can not find how to insert a degree symbol. I can find it on Word and have googled for results but some of the answers such as ALT + 0176 doesn't work in acrobat reader..help!

On an English language system Alt+0176 and Alt+248 are equivalent. Not Alt+0248.

Details: Alt+number without leading zero gives a number in code page 850 (Code page 850 - Wikipedia )

Alt+zero+number gives a number in code page 1252 (Windows-1252 - Wikipedia )

History and more choices: Alt code - Wikipedia

Try copy/paste from Word as your first step. Not all fonts have a degree sign but you can try it. Alt keystrokes should also work If the font is ok and you do it right.

You said an alternative solution. It varies depending on the operating system people are using.

 

Degree Symbol on PC: Hold down the Alt key, and on the numeric keypad on the right of the keyboard, type 0176 or Alt+ 248

 

on Mac: Press Option Shift 8.

 

Copy and Paste: °

Do you have Adobe Reader Pro DC because the tool 'EDIT PDF' is only for the Pro version.

There is actually no product called Adobe Reader Pro DC. It is Acrobat Pro DC.

Thanks for the replies! Can copy and paste from Word but is time consuming. I've just discovered character map on my laptop from which I can get the symbol, still no joy with a keyboard shortcut but this is relatively quick so will do for now.
