You can make your own private character using Windows Private Character Editor, see help on the Character Map.
So if you need a circumflex over, say an x, you can make your own, and use it as you would any other character.
For example I made the following character, an x with a freehand circle around it: (You could do a logo also)
The character will copy and paste as a Bitmap just fine,
But the character will not copy as a Picture?
It will print and it will print as a pdf.
I can copy the character and use it, so don't have to keep inserting from the Character Map.
Questions (I am leary about testing this sort of thing on a work computer)
I don't see how to delete a character, I can replace though, so maby that's OK, just replace after goofing around.
The character will only work on a compuer with the character in the Character Map, I am guessing there will be an error about no character exisiting. Or if there is a private character with the same number, it will use whatever that character is.
If I wanted others to use the file, I would need to privide a Private Character Map, How would this be done?
(If not too many, they could make their own, they don't need to match, just have the same position or number.
PS I am attaching the Mathcad 15 file as well, What happens?
It's easy enough to make your own characters, but what about sharing them? I am sure it can be done, but is it advisable to do so? and how involved is it?
Of course if you already use private characters, there will be confilcts; but only in the character displayed if the same code is used. I don't know how common it is to use private characters (not just in Mathcad).
Some of the other threads, for example the x with a circumflex, where they are documeting their own work, it seems that this is a reasoable solution given that they probably only require a limited number of characters.
