Alt Code Shortcuts for Triangle Symbols

Different types of triangle symbols can be inserted in Office documents using alt code shortcuts. You can either use decimal codes or hexadecimal codes to insert these special symbols. Decimal codes will work on all documents but you need a keyboard with separate numeric pad. Alternative, hexadecimal codes can be used. But this will work only on Word documents.

How to Insert Triangle Symbols?

Decimal: Hold one of alt keys and then type the numbers using number pad. For example, Alt 9698 will produce the black lower right triangle symbol as ◢.

Hex Code: Enter the hexadecimal code and then press alt and x keys to convert the code into triangle symbol. For example, 26A0 Alt X will insert a warning symbol as ⚠.

  1. Note: a number of the alt key codes found throughout the internet do not work correctly for Adobe programs running on the WIN operating system. For example:

    — Alt 916 is supposed to be a Greek capital Delta but shows a lower case “o” with two dots on top.

    — Alt 15 is supposed to be a “sun” symbol but shows a tall box with an x inside (same is true for many of the AltKey bullet symbols).

    Adobe is aware of these issues for their products (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Muse, etc.) running on Windows (Macs are not affected). To date, according to the forums on their own website, their tech support and engineering teams have not fixed the problem or provided an alternative.

    Our workaround is to type and cut symbols from an MS document and paste them into an Adobe document. Then save the file as a PDF (or in raster format for web graphics) to maintain the integrity of the layout – math and scientific equations, especially. As with glyphs and special fonts, this means files cannot be shared in their native format.

    • Thanks for your input. These shortcuts will work on applications using Unicode character encoding to convert the code into symbols. Generally, the decimal code works with alt key in Windows based applications while the hexadecimal code (limited to 4 digit codes) works with option key on Mac. For third party applications, it depends on which encoding they adopt.
