Displaying asterix (*) full size

Post by Clive.Hillier »

Hi All,

Was wondering if anyone can help me. I'm trying to output an asterix on a email signature block, as shown below, using VBScript:

If (strExtension) Then objSelection.TypeText "Ext. *" & strExtension & " | "

When I do this the asterix character appears superscript in the signature block & increasing the font size increases the line spacing.

Anyone have any idea how to get the asterix to show inline at same font size as the rest of the characters?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Clive.

would post this in the Outlook forum. Just a guess but it is likely due to either a character set mismatch or the font you are using.

Hi jvierra,

Many thanks for the response, you hit the nail on the head regarding the font. I have tested with a few different ones now & settled on one that better suits my requirements.

As always many thanks for your assistance.

Clive.
