I say… what’s that‽
How did people communicate effectively before interrobangs‽ And why aren’t interrobangs used more today‽ Can you tell it’s my favorite punctuation mark‽

I think we should start a movement, CM! I’ve only just learned how to use one on a mobilius phone‽
I love it‽
It’s a fun punctuation, Eugenia! 🙂
How do you do it? I always just alternate ?!?!?!?!
On the mobile phone it’s easy… you just hold the question mark button for a couple of seconds and you get the option for the interrobang and the upside down question mark (don’t know what that one’s called! 🤣)
On a computer, I believe, you hold down the ALT key whilst typing 8253… although I haven’t tried this on a computer.
The sad thing is, the interrobang isn’t always visible on the mobile, it’s replaced either by an X or an empty rectangle. I get the feeling not everyone wants us to use this particular type of punctuation mark!
Well, on my computer I did find the degrees symbol for temperature and the “…”
‽ Alt+8253 didn’t work in this comment box, so I’ve copied and pasted one. That’ll probably not work either‽
Well, what do I know‽ It worked!
That worked here!
Copy and paste worked! Now I just need a way to save it
I can’t help you there… unless you call by to this post every time you want to use one and copy it from here! 🤣😊
I might have to!‽
This is a great character! Never heard of it before but how useful. Haven’ttried it yet, but this is what chrome says about usung it on a PC/laptop: “Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+/ writes an interrobang character. Toolbar button displays window of characters to choose.”
It doesn’t work in this reply box, Icewolf… and neither does the official CTRL+8253, but pasting the symbol in seems to work! ‽
It would work just fine if it could be created in the 1st place Tom!😀
It appears my mobile browser doesn’t like it. It prefers a rectangle instead! 🔳🙄
Excuse the typos!!
Thanks for the heads up, Icewolf— although I never spotted any! 😀
Of hourse you didn’t Tom!😊
