is there a way to type a number and have a circle around it in leo? kinda like @ symbal but with a number in the middle? hope this makes sense. by the way, this is for indicating a string number in notation.

The ones that are in the font base can also be accessed from the character palette, although you'll have to hunt through to the page that has them. You could conceivably then keep this open and use it.... IIRC, if they do have shortcuts from the keyboard, the character palette will also tell you what they are at the bottom.

I found the font and tried copying them but coudn't. I need to be able to type or paste the numbers onto a website called www.noteflight.com. is this doable?

Open the font dialog box and at the bottom left corner click the little gear and select "characters". From the next pop up select "Digits" and pick the number you want,, If you are going to use often you can save as a Favorite from the little gear at the bottom of that box.
