Hi all, 

 

I'm trying to find the following character, but not easy to search for :)

 

 

Does anyone know where this resides, Font & keystroke?

Do you know the technical name of the symbol?

Closest thing I could see was Down arrow from bar? Not sure if that is what you're after, though.

 

I know you can use the Unicode for it, and use Alt+X when selected to convert it into the symbol, within things like Word.

No idea unfortunately, tried googling a description with expected results 😀

I think the previous post has the name.  South arrow from long bar.

 

I believe this is part of the unicode arrows font set.

The first image I got from doing this was a very skimpy g-string

aka "mapstodown"?  I dunno, I can't see a font with quite the right "arrowhead" size or proportions.

To the OP... more context may help?

I find it in a font I use for fixed width (mostly programming) - DejaVu Sans:

 

 

0x21A7 = 8615.  However when I try to ALT+8615 the character I get something else (with that font)

Try this link:

 

Unicode Characters in the Arrows Block - FileFormat.Info

 

The symbol you want appears to be there, a couple of pages down.

It feels like I've seen this font before 🤣
