About Insert Special Characters for Google Sheets.

As the name suggests, the Insert Special Character Add-on allows you to access the complete list of special characters like maths symbols, shapes and arrows, currency symbols, dingbat and Greek and Coptic symbols from the sidebar of your Google sheets.

This is all accessible from the convenience of the sidebar within your selected Google Sheet.

The add-on comes with a 7-day free trial followed by a very reasonable one-time $7 purchase, but…I spoke to Adam from Sheets Help and managed to get you 20% off.

I don’t know how long the offer will last so I recommend that if you find this Add-on useful, take advantage of the discount while it is still available.

Use the code SPECIAL20 at checkout to get the discount. You can find the code in the description below this video.
