Is there consensus or best practice on how to best access special characters (like arrows or numbers in circles) in a font?
I couldn’t find anything so I implemented something my own way with contextual alternates:
Numbers in circles can be created with Contextual Alternates enabled and typing a combination of
(white or black)#
and a digit (0-9)
Arrows can be created with Contextual Alternates enabled and typing a combination of >
(right, left, up, down)
Everything works fine this way but maybe there are drawbacks that I didn’t foresee?
