I have an InRoads Deed stylesheet that outputs a ^ symbol which I need to maintain for use in our other deed writing software which does not recognize the degree symbol. We are converting the style sheet to OpenRoads and the current output in OpenRoads is a degree symbol and I cannot figure out how to change it and hard code it as a carrot symbol (^) as the output. Can anyone help with this?
That isn't currently possible because the degree symbol is hard coded. I made an enhancement request for this, and its log information can be found below. The current workaround should be to Find/Replace after generating the report.

Pardon me for jumping in, but this is the strangest thing I have heard in a while. For all of my career we have jumped thru hoops to get a proper degree symbol on our plans because most rsc fonts either lacked the symbol or had it in an unorthodox slot. Now, any symbol is much easier thanks to improved support of true type fonts and fonts oriented to the civil engineer.
Wouldn't it be better in the long term to adapt whatever downstream processes are in play to use the properly formatted reports you now have available to you? It really sounds like that those down stream systems was one of the hoops your organization jumped thru to overcome defiicinecies of the past. Why not just reverse that old hoop and put things back to rights?
