How To Type Square Root

Hi, in word it’s Alt 251 but for some reason it doesn’t translate across to Scrivener. Does anyone know how to type a square root sign? Thanks

Hmm, I’m not sure why the alt code isn’t working (that isn’t something I have a lot of experience with as I haven’t had a numpad in years), but if you use the Edit ▸ Writing Tools ▸ Character Map command, you can search for “square root” to find it.

For stuff you need to input a lot, check out the Corrections pane in Options, tick Enable additional substitutions toward the bottom, and then click the button. You can make it so typing in something like “SqRt” turns into the symbol.

Ah fabulous, thank you
