One last set of TextExpander symbols

As a followup to this post and this one, here’s my last set of simple TextExpander snippets for inserting special characters.

To insert Type

As you might expect, I don’t use these nearly as much as the fractions or keyboard symbols, but they come in handy when tweeting. It’s annoying that the ballot box character (☐) is often rendered larger than either the X’d ballot box (☒) or the checked ballot box (☑). Makes it hard to use them as way of showing votes.

If you don’t like my use of the semicolon to prefix every abbreviation, you can change it to whatever you like using the teprefix script, which is in this GitHub repository.
