Yes, you too can type cool Unicode characters in your posts, e-mail, signature,
blog, blog comments, etc, using GNOME!
1. Start Accessories/Character Map(gucharmap)
2 Locate interesting characters (see character groups such as “dingbats”).
3. Select and copy
4. Paste in your application.
If there is a character you use often,
1. Note down the Unicode codepoint.
2. To type it, press
Ctrl-Shift-2702 is for the scissors character (✂).
It’s recommended to browse available Unicode characters from “gucharmap”, or
