Mac Command, Control, Shift, Option symbols


I want to add these unicode icons to my project. (mac Command ⌘, Option, Control, and shift)
How do i do this in BM3.55?


Hey Scott,

There are a couple of ways you can get those Unicode characters into your project.

First, you can just copy and paste them into a text field. I found a handy site that listed a lot of them.

Or, you can create an image file with the icon, and import them into your project. All images can be used as icons, so if you want them in your icon library, that’s how you’d do that.

I’m not sure if that completely covers what you’re looking for, Scott, so please let me know if I have missed something. I’ll stand by to make sure you’re all set.


Thanks Brendan, I was really hoping to be able to put a code in and mockups would display the correct icon, but this works too. Thanks.


It’s definitely something we want to do, Scott. I’ll check in with the dev team to see where we are with it and let them know that you would like to see it as well. :slight_smile:

Happy Holidays, my friend!
