How to insert a smiley / wingding???

  1. Default How to insert a smiley / wingding???


    Not a critical question, but I'm curious.....I know that I can insert
    a "smiley face" by changing the font to wingding and hitting shift J.

    Is there a way to automate this process so that I don't have to change
    the font to wingding each time and then change it back to the regular
    font?

    thnx

    I know of no way to do that. But why would you want to? Only people who
    have that particular font on their system will see it, and there's a
    good chance they won't.

    Yes, it involves a three-keystroke sequence -- colon, followed by a minus
    sign, followed by a close-parenthesis, like this: :-).

    You may also make a winking smiley face using a similar three-keystroke
    sequence -- semicolon, followed by a minus sign, followed by a close-
    parenthesis, like this: ;-).

    I know, I know...... ;>)

    I was just hoping to actually insert the wingding font for a smiley
    (shift j) without jumping back and forth between arial and wingding
    and back to arial.
