Mac Character Codes

I often find myself searching the web for a list of Mac character codes – more specifically, which keyboard shortcut to use to type a certain character. So I figured it was about time that I compiled a list of the most common characters that people search for. I’ve omitted some of the more obscure characters, so if you don’t see something you need, let me know and I’ll add it in.

Currency

  • Cent (¢) – Option+4
  • Pound (£) – Option+3
  • Euro (€) – Shift+Option+2
  • Yen (¥) – Option+y
  • Florin (ƒ) – Option+f

Typographical

  • Bullet (•) – Option+8
  • Copyright (©) – Option+g
  • Registered (®) – Option+r
  • Trademark (™) – Option+2
  • Section (§) – Option+6
  • Paragraph (¶) – Option+7
  • Dagger (†) – Option+t
  • Double Dagger (‡) – Shift+Option+7
  • Ellipsis (…) – Option+;

Miscellaneous

  • Plus or Minus (±) – Shift+Option+=
  • Infinity (∞) – Option+5
  • Degree (°) – Shift+Option+8

I’ll post more as I come across them, but the above shortcuts will likely cover the majority of your needs. If you notice an obvious one missing, please let me know.
