Use a bluetooth keyboard to type symbols or special characters on the iPad.

Today’s monospaced font edition of Glasskeys.com gives you a table to copy & paste into Notes or Pages to provide a reference of symbols and key combinations whilst using your bluetooth keyboard on the iPad. (Saving the second image above is another option)

NOTE: If copying & pasting into Pages use the Courier or Courier New fonts to space things nicely. I also pasted this into TextEdit on the Mac. Use Courier Font, Regular, with Font Size 14 for good results.


CHARACTER    § 1 2  3 4 5 6 7 8 9  0 – =
ALT          § ¡ ™  £ ¢ ∞ § ¶ • ªº º – ≠
ALT+SHIFT    ± € ‹› fi fl fi fl ‡ ° ·  ‚ — ±

CHARACTER    q w e r t y u i o p [ ]
ALT          œ ∑ ´ ® † ¥ ¨ ˆ ø π “ ‘
ALT+SHIFT    Œ „ ´ ‰ ˇ Á ¨ ˆ Ø ∏ ” ’

CHARACTER    a s d f g h j k l ; ‘ \
ALT          å ß ∂ ƒ © ˙ ∆ ˚ ¬ … æ «
ALT+SHIFT    Å Í Î Ï ˝ Ó Ô  Ò Ú Æ »

CHARACTER    ` z x c v b n m , . /
ALT          ` Ω ≈ ç √ ∫ ˜ µ ≤ ≥ ÷
ALT+SHIFT    ` ¸ ˛ Ç ◊ ı ˜ Â ¯ ˘ ¿


ALT+u and ALT+` and ALT+n are special cases, type then select another character to place accents, umlauts, and diacriticals above the character.
Example: ALT+n then striking o = õ

CMD+I advances the cursor in Pages as tab:      see     this.
CMD+Z = Undo, CMD+A = Select all, CMD+C = Copy, CMD+V = Paste
SHIFT+Arrow keys select text.
