"greater than or equal to" symbol

Can anyone tell me how to get this symbol into some text on a Pro/E drawing?

    RE: "greater than or equal to" symbol
    What do you mean by getting it into a text? In a note?, before a dimension text line? or Inside a repeat region? Insert a note and write the text. Edit the dimension and in the second tab write the text before the @D You might need to specify a little bit further for better suggestions

      Symbol
      Define a symbol for "greater than or equal to" ensure it is rescale while define and insert into drawing wherever you need.. Chander

        RE: Symbol
        Such a symbol exists in your "symbols" folder under your Pro E loadpoint. In WF 4 it is in a subfolder called cadam_symb, and the filename is sym301.sym. If you can find this on your machine, I would save this symbol to a custom symbol pallette so it is easier to find. There is also a less than / equal to symbol in there... and several others that may be helpful.

          Depending on how you are setting up the note you could also insert it using character map.

            symbols
            Chris, Thanks for pointing out where some of these special type symbols are located. We have also always looked for a greater than and equal to or less than and equal to symbol. The only thing I found with these, as I just looked at them and put them into a drawing, is they are set to a FIXED SIZE, so they cannot be re-sized. Dennis

              RE: symbols
              you can redefine the symbol and add attributes so that you can rescale as you wish. -chander

                  RE: symbols
                  To get the greater than symbol try selecting it from the symbol font in character map. In ProE type Assembly Force {1:greater than symbol} 1Kn. For the greater than symbol paste it from character map, it should turn into what appears to be a superscripted 3. Select the text line and you should be able to individually select the text groups "Assembly Force", "greater than symbol (superscripted 3 at this point)", and "1Kn". Select the greater than symbol and change the text style to symbol. Try this and see if it works.

                        Not that I have ever found. That would be too easy. Where would the challenge be in that? KIDDING!

                            Starr and all who have written here, I saw that you responded to this question, as I had also done so earlier on, but since have found an easy solution to this. It can be done by adding in the &lt; or &gt; from the keyboard when adding a note, and then UNDERLINING the individual pieces of text. When adding your line(s) of text to your note, add in the note then go back to the PROPERTIES for the note and add in the brackets and numbers as shown below before and after the &lt; and/or &gt; symbols: Original typing of note: EXAMPLE OF &gt; AS WELL AS &lt; SYMBOLS CREATION Then select the note by double clicking on it and in the NOTE PROPERTIES window, change the note so it now looks like the following: EXAMPLE OF {1:&gt;} AS WELL AS {2:&lt;} SYMBOLS CREATION The numbers (1 and 2) will update to what is needed for line numbering after you save the note. Now after the note is on the drawing, if you do a Format / Text Style you can INDIVIDUALLY PICK the &lt; and/or &gt; symbols and now choose to have then UNDERLINED to get the results you are looking for.
