You can make different symbols and letters by using a character map. Each computer has one. You can find it by clicking Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools> Character Map. You search through what's there. If you select different fonts, sometimes you'll find a range of different shapes and things.
Angelee made a How To about this. It's called How To Make Shapes Using Your Keyboard, if I remember right. I would have posted the link for you, but the site is acting up right now. I'll try it again in a little bit and see if i can't get it to work.
you can look it up on youtube and copy and paste it if you have a laptop but if your on a reg. computer i believe it is ctrl+alt+(any number on the right hand side, not the top row) and it makes hearts and other pictures.
It's "How To Make Symbols on Your Keyboard"...and I tried to get to in, but it says "something went wrong"...I don't think it works on laptops unless you have a number keypad.
On the tool bar click insert, click picture and select what you want from the drop down menu.
*like that*? Like what?
