Type different symbol for inches?

Hi All,

I use rhino for architectural design, and I would love to make the input of the inches symbol more efficient, specifically to locate it on the numkey pad with a single stroke. Maybe an f-key would work …

Is there a way to code this into some meta-level macro? I don’t know the right terminology to describe this …

I know this is a little esoteric, but I’m sure there would be a number of useful applications in terms of re-configuring the keyboard.

Thanks in advance.

I think what you’re looking for is a “programmable” keyboard. Years ago we had those. They worked at the operating system level and had tools to assign the character code to a key.
The Unicode string for the equal sign is: U+003D
I’m not aware of anyway to use that at the application level.

Hi @a.henry.rose

I’m not sure, but this might be an option: Software-mapping your key(s) to fit your request. I’ve no idea if it works with the num pad!

One option is http://www.randyrants.com/2018/06/sharpkeys-3-7/
I’m sure there are others out there :slight_smile:
