I’m making a spreadsheet that includes some IPA symbols, and I’m having trouble forming some of the multi-keystroke symbols. For example, g< and t= . I’ve found two work-arounds that might help others, and would welcome a more proper solution.
First, it seems that Excel is causing the problem, because if I go to Microsoft’s Notepad, the symbols form correctly. So, that is the first work-around. Form your symbol in Notepad, and copy and paste it into your spreadsheet.
The second work-around is, in Excel, hold down the first key of the multi-key sequence, (like the g of g< ), until it starts to auto-repeat, and then without letting up on that key, hit the second key. You’ll get the symbol you want, and can delete that string of unwanted repeats in front of it.
But, if there’s a better way, I’d like to hear it.
