I was just working on something in Google Docs and needed to insert a letter “a” with a circumflex. I clicked on “insert symbol” and searched for “a,” but none of the options were what I needed. Then I noticed that there was a box where you could use your finger to draw the symbol you needed. (I’m working on a tablet; wouldn’t work with an older computer.)
Well, worth a try, I thought.
Definitely worth a try! Look what I got when I drew a picture of what I was looking for. Thanks, Google!

Google is amazing! A little scary sometimes, in that it seems it can read my mind, but very cool. I just a new ipad for Christmas. I’ll have to check out some features!! Thanks for the tip! 🙂
