Type Celsius or Temperature Units?

In this example when using Celsius or Fahrenheit there is a small degree symbol typed before the C or F. How do you type this symbol in Mathcad Prime 3.1? I found a degree symbol for angle but not temperature in the Operators and Symbols toolbox.

I found the answer, it is in the unit drop down menu

Alternatively, you can do this from the keyboard...

  1. Type the number or variable
  2. Use <Ctrl>-<Shift>-U to get the "scaling" operator
  3. Press the double quote to type a string literal
  4. Between the quotes, type °F  -  <Alt>-0176 on numeric keypad to get degree symbol
  5. Delete one of the quotes
  6. Press <Ctrl>-Q twice to change the label to a Unit

I didn't say it was quicker...

This was wicked helpful, thanks!
