How to add cent sign?
I know how to use text tool and different fonts there, but how do I add a 'cent' sign after a number? Like ten cents, but replace the word 'cents' with the cent symbol?
Thanks

RE: How to add cent sign?
You copy/paste it from elsewhere if you haven't got it on your keyboard. Windows has an accessory called the character map (IIRC) which will copy about any character to the clipboard.
On some keyboards you can also enter it using its old PC ASCII code, something like as Alt-1-8-9 (decimal) or Alt-X-B-D (hexadecimal).

I cant remember if you use windows or linux,
Windows
You should be able to use alt-0162 (on the number pad) to get a cent sign. Just tried that and not working here. My advice use the character map, select the cent sign, copy to clipboard and paste into the Gimp dialog with a ctrl-v

as here http://i.imgur.com/w9P9G.jpg

Linux,
If you are only need 'ยข' occasionally same method as windows. http://i.imgur.com/Mql8b.jpg
Otherwise you need to investigate how to enable "compose keys" on your distro. Typically takes a 3 key sequence. Just checked and thats working here (PCLOS)
