Default Inserting Card Symbols

I need to frequently insert card symbols into my Powerpoint Bridge tutorials.


When I used PPT 2010, I was able to program my numberpad 3,4,5,6 keys so that Alt-3 inserted a Heart symbol ♥, etc.

I can't do it in PPT 2016. The 'More symbols' function is not available.

Could someone please point me to directions on another way to do it?

Many Thanks,

Are you sure you don't mean WORD. AFAIK More symbols / Shortcut keys has never been available in any version of PowerPoint

You can get your card symbols via Insert > Symbols > Symbol > Font > Scroll to Symbol.
Locate the required symbols and either d/click to insert, or select > Insert.

Alternatively, you can press the Numlock Key, then press the Alt + 3 keys for a Heart, the Alt + 4 keys for a Diamond, the Alt + 5 keys for a Club and the Alt + 6 keys for a Spade.
Note the symbols are are little different when using the keyboard method.
