RE: How do you make and Ampersand & symbol in text

Hi DougP,

Which font are you using?  The ampersand from the keyboard should display as an ampersand, unless you are using a custom font which doesn't support this (meaning whoever built the font, didn't build ampersand).

it is BOLD.SHX
It shows up as a Plus sign instead of ampersand.
I'm not sure if I can change it since the drawing is entirely notes for the project. It took me 3 days to get them all on and went through tons of updates and changes.
I might just use "AND"

Hi DougP,

Just for grins you might try assigning your style a different font file and see if works, at least you'll know...

Can I change the Font in the existing style and have it update all the text in the drawing. It's an 11x17 drawing with thoudsands of words on it. I would rather not have to edit each line and change its style. I could make a routine to do it suppose.

Hi DougP,

That's exactly how it works!
