Sometimes I want a diameter symbol or a plus/minus symbol when I am creating a note but I can only edit the note afterwards to add the special characters. Is there a way (ie: ctrl S) to call up the text symbol pallet while inserting a note in Creo 3.0?

StephenWilliams is exactly right, and normally I will click from that menu. But when I don't feel like taking my hands away from the keyboard for a mouse-click, I also use alt-codes for the character I want, most often "±". To use these codes, hold down the alt key while typing the number on the keypad for the symbol you want, then release the alt key. ± is "alt 241", while ø is "alt 0248". Putting "alt symbols windows" into a search engine will offer several pages with relevant lists.
My ribbon was not defaulting to the format tab so I did not see the special characters. Probably something about our company's customizations to the interface. Funny I had not noticed before.
