Searching for ID: IU2011120677

IU2011120677
I want the bent-arrow Enter (carriage return) symbol ↵ on a key
I want a different looking arrow on a key
I want some other symbol
I want a custom symbol on a key (and do not want to use an image)

Build-A-Board 2.20 has the option of using a different font per key, and fully supports Unicode, so a wide range of characters can be easily displayed on a key. For Windows targets, there is also an option to build custom characters (e.g. company logos) by creating a specific "personal character set"

There are some symbols available via the Key Label {IMG:??} type interface - see the sample board here: http://www.imgpresents.com/bldabrd/guide/html/babbuilderkeypropertieslevel2.html (about half way down the page)

Example #1 (bent arrow Enter / carriage return ↵ Symbol)

Now we will do an arbitrary character - we will use the Private Character Editor (EUDCEDIT.exe), create a character, then use this character on a key.
