How to type a degree symbol?


In the tutorial for Cindyscript, one needs to type a degree sign --- how?
The example script works with values like "pi/2" if one switches from degrees to radians in the main window.

Hi jpo,

probably we never realized that this is difficult for some keyboard layouts. On my (German) mac there is a degree sign left of the "1" key, so it is super-easy. Are you on Windows or Mac? And what keyboard layout (US?).

Of course, you can just type /180*π instead…
