    A(2)+B(2) = Blockhead

    This first posting in the Math/Layout section was supposed to be a Pythagorean digression from a suggestion, posted elsewhere, that we start a math layout section.

    So we (I) started the math layout section, and then managed to hard-delete the first content for it as I was moving it here.

    With that said, I'm gonna get yelled at by our webmaster and our site administrator.

    In the mean time, feel free to use this space for posting your math and layout tips and tricks.

    Also, similar tips are probably sprinkled throughout the WeldingWeb. If you stumble across any, send a note to our site administrator, dbeaumont, and she'll copy them over here.

    Don't send the note to me; I'll just inadvertently them.

    Bob,
    After laying out a hole pattern 15 mm off location on one inch plate I am not about to point any fingers for awhile.

    That must have taken all day. My goof only took a keystroke. Thanks for making me feel better.

    Joking aside, I appreciate this section of the forums, hopefully we can get some good tips and discussions going on here.

    But I belevie the formula is more like A^2 + B^2 = C^2

    My Bad.

    Hold down alt & use nums keys to the right. For example "alt" plus "0178" usually equals "˛". Isn't universal with all fonts but works with many.

    It's a bit inconvinent, as i'm on a laptop with no number pad. Doesn't work with the number row at the top of the keyboard.

    On my laptop, which doesn't have the numberpad, I can use Alt+Fn and then use the blue-number-lettered hidden number pad inside the qwerty. For example, the 0 is on the M key and the 1 is on the J.

    Here's the result of Alt+Fn+mj78: ˛

    You can also just keep the Character Map handy...
