How To Use Hidden Characters On Your Mac Keyboard

In addition to using the Emoji Viewer to type special characters, or holding a key to add accents, you can also learn some special keyboard combinations using the Keyboard Viewer. These allow you to type some symbols like degrees, pi, the Apple symbol and accent marks using standard keystrokes with the help of the Option and Shift keys. The Keyboard Viewer allows you to see exactly which key combinations match which characters. This is dependent on the type of keyboard you own.

    Thank you for giving me: ≈ ∆ ÷ ° and the others. I have been wishing for years for these characters, having no clue that they have always been there.
