Is there an alt code for a lower case theta that works in Framemaker? I've tried a couple I found on the internet, but they don't work - they appear as some other symbol.

Thanks, MK

There's a Unicode character for it (U+03B8). Fabulous Code Chart claims that Alt+952 is a lowercase theta, but caveats it won't work in all programs. It certainly doesn't seem to work in FM, I think I got one of those weird ASCII characters used to indicate a wall in Nethack.You can also apply a character tag to change the font to Symbol and use the lowercase q.

Wouldn't that depend on the font you're using?

Arial. We are able to use alt 234 to make an ohm symbol. Just wondering if there’s one out there for a lower case theta.

Thanks

Another tip here: You can also enter the Unicode value of any character and but it wit a pre-fix "\u" into the change-to-text box in the Find/Change dialog. In this case "\u03B8". Like this:

Then just place the text insertion mark into the position in your text, where you want to insert the character and click "Change." This inserts the lower case theta at the current position. Note, that the character will only appear correct in the document if you are using a font which has the according codepoint actually populated with a character. Otherwise, it will appear as a question mark ("?") until you assign a font that supports the character. Also note, that once you have clicked "change", FrameMaker automatically "converts" the Unicode code "\u03B8" into the actual glyph. In this case "θ".
