    Who uses them? or knows the combinations to make which symbol?

    such as √ is created by option+V
    and ∑ is created by option+W

    and option+shift+2 makes €

    i know the keyboard has these functions, just wondering if anyone actually uses them? :confused:

    I use them all the time especially these ∑, º, •, ©, and ƒ. Also the accents are very handy :)

    Meh. I'll use them when I need them, but I don't have too many memorized.
