4.INSERT CHECK MARK SYMBOL IN GOOGLE DOCS USING AUTOCORRECT/ SUBSTITUTION OPTION

Have you ever tried to type (c) in GOOGLE DOCS??

If you haven’t tried, try it right now. You would find that it’ll get converted into © symbol.

It happens because of the SUBSTITUTION SETTINGS in the GOOGLE DOCS.

Sometimes this autocorrect option can be irritating, but we can make use of this option to insert DIVISION symbol directly just by entering any code such as (div) or divi() or anything which you think you are not going to use as a text in your document.

So, let us try to learn to create one entry so that our application might help us to get the division symbol directly.

FOLLOW THE STEPS TO INSERT THE DIVISION SYMBOL BY PUTTING THE ENTRY IN SUBSTITUTION SETTINGS

  • Go to TOOLS MENU and choose PREFERENCES.

CHOOSE OPTIONS
  • Choose SUBSTITUTIONS TAB in the PREFERENCES WINDOW.
CHOOSE AUTO CORRECT OPTIONS
  • Under the SUBSTITUTIONS TAB, we can see two fields, REPLACE and WITH.
  • Under the REPLACE FIELD enter the shortcut name e.g. divi() for our example.
  • Under the WITH FIELD paste the division symbol.
  • Click OK.

ADD THE AUTOCORRECT PAIR
  • We are done. Let us check it now.
  • We can try this by just typing the word we fixed for substitution / auto correct i.e. divi() and it’ll be converted into DIVISION SYMBOL as shown in the picture below.
ENTER THE AUTOCORRECT SHORTCUT

5.INSERT CHECK MARK SYMBOL IN GOOGLE DOCS USING ALT CODE FUNCTION

If you have access to the Google Docs, definitely you can access Google Sheets too.

This is the option, which you can use to enter check mark in google docs with the help of google Sheets.

We made use of this option extensively in the article HOW TO ADD SUBSCRIPT IN GOOGLE SHEETS and HOW TO ADD SUPERSCRIPT IN GOOGLE SHEETS.

If time allows, kindly visit any of the article as there is description of the UNICODES which we are going to use in this method.

Various kinds of checkmarks are provided by the UNICODE ORG to be used as the characters.

UNICHAR function helps us to show the characters given by the specific codes.

To insert the check marks, we’ll find out the UNICODES for all the checkmarks available and use unichar function to insert them.

The following table shows the UNICODES of different check marks available.

STEPS TO INSERT CHECKMARK USING UNICHAR FUNCTION IN GOOGLE SHEETS

  • Select the cell where checkmark is needed.
  • Enter the formula as =UNICHAR( CODE IN DECIMAL ).
  • For example, the first check box, having the decimal code 9745, we’ll use the formula as =UNICHAR(9745) and press enter.
