Type the Euro Symbol in Mac OS X

Nov 7, 2009 - 4 Comments

euro symbol € – If you want to reference the Euro symbol on your Mac, type the following command:

€ Euro SymbolOption+Shift+2

A friend of mine just asked “How do I type the Euro symbol in OS X?” and he’s pretty tech savvy, so if he didn’t know than I’m sure many others don’t. The Euro is becoming increasingly powerful in global economics so it’s probably a good idea to know how to type the symbol, whether or not you ever use the currency itself or it’s symbol beyond your Mac is up to you though.

It’s worth noting that the Euro symbol is only available to type in some Mac OS X fonts, you won’t be able to use it with all font combinations, particularly some of the custom and funky font sets are lacking euro support.

    well… I think it depends on what input source is configured.
    shift-option-2 works on usa keyboard
    option-2 on british
    option-e on italian :)

    I just have the ‘show’ keyboard in my toolbar in the upper right corner. So when I don’t know the symbol (which happen with the less common ones like ¥ and £) I can get the keyboard showing.
