    Help with Libre Office Please 6th Mar 18 at 10:54 AM
    I'm typing a list of certain bids in Bridge.

    Is it possible, using Libre Office to type the symbols for the four card suits, Spade, Heart, Diamond, Club.

    If it is, can somebody please tell me how to do it? I've tried Insert, Special Characters but they don't exist there.

    Many thanks.

    Unicode characters 2660 to 2667 have the four suits in solid black and as outlines.

    In LibreOffice, if you hit CTRL+SHIFT+U then type in the 4-digit number, that should insert the relevant character.
