A degree symbol in Lyx?

Postby johndb » Sun Jun 14, 2009 12:55 am

Does anyone know how to insert a degree symbol as in 360 degrees in Lyx? I have the latest 1.6.3-1 version.

Hi johndb,

welcome to the board!
You could use
  1. $360^\circ$

Ah yes I was making a silly mistake, for the record, when I put the degree symbol after the number there was this large space that didn't look right. But I realise to get a more compact authentic look, I need to include the number in math mode and still in the math mode brackets to superscript the circle.
