    Finding symbols on Macbook Pro
    Is there a giude to finding the various symbols used whilst typing?

    For example on my PC keyboard all the symbols are shown on the keys, but on my Mac i cannot find the hash symbol.

    (This one #)

    Thanks

    The hash character is # (alt 3)

    # is Alt + 3

    To view all characters:-

    Choose Apple menu > System Preferences and click International.


    Click Input Menu, then select the checkbox next to character palette.


    Choose Show Character Palette from the Input menu (international symbol) on the right side of the menu bar.

    Once this option is turned on, whenever you need a symbol just click the flag on your menu bar and select 'Show Character Palette' from the drop down menu.

    Edit: Looks like somebody beat me to it
