Quote from: SGOS on October 04, 2018, 06:31:55 AMThis has troubled me throughout the thread. I see some people that can print out the one that looks like a Chinese character, but all I get is something that looks like and "n". In grade school we were taught to draw three lines that looked kind of like a table. But math books and all printed articles use the classic Chinese like character. One of things about computers is that they create text that approaches the printed page quality in a book, but without all the erasure marks and extra scribbling, so I expect to make a real pie sign with my computer, not just some make do dingus that looks like some top IBM executive said, "Hey! We forgot to make the character for pi, so me and the boys decided we are going to just use "n" and tell everyone it's pi."Pi, my ass!

Quote from: trdsf on October 04, 2018, 08:58:07 AMYeah, the sans serif pi just looks like an angular lower case 'n': Ï€nÏ€nÏ€nÏ€nThat's why I try to remember to also make it a serifed font like Times when I need to use it, for improved clarity: Ï€
Quote from: SGOS on October 04, 2018, 09:50:15 AMI'm still not getting it.Oh wait:Ï€There! I typed Ï€ using [Num Lock-alternate- 227] and then enclosed it in Times New Roman: Ï€ It doesn't show up as the regular pi symbol in the text editor, but it shows up in the "preview mode".How did you figure that out?
