I know there's a keyboard shortcut for ¶ but I couldn't find while googling it. Can anyone please point that out for me?
Option & 7
Why do you need the shortcut? Use of the symbol in Calc dialog might mean something different in other places.
I've never experienced a problem using Opt+7 for ¶ in FileMaker.
From what I can tell, it is functionally identical to using the button to insert the same key.
Can you elaborate on what you mean by "might mean something different in other places"?
I've always used the on-screen button in Windows since I don't know the easy key shortcut like on Mac.
The Calculation dialog interprets the character as the CR. Elsewhere it's a font character that may be ASCII 244. Code ("¶") becomes 13.
I don't believe I see much usage outside the calc dialog. YMMV!
TomHays when I'm using my Windows laptop I'll use Char(13) in calculations because I don't like taking my fingers off the keyboard to fiddle with the laptop pointing device!
On a Mac I use alt+7 (option+7). I've become very adept at typing &¶& to break apart lines
