Cheat Sheet for Creating Numbers Inside Circles

Sometimes it comes in handy to use numbers within your text to refer to numbers in your diagram. Like this slide.

You might just use a circle shape with a number inside it. But then, when you update the text, you also have to move the circle around manually. Time-consuming!

Instead, use the Windings2 font. It creates a number inside a circle that stays in place even as you update your text. You can also change the font size without having to resize the circle. Here’s a handy printable cheat sheet.

    Windings gives numbers from 0-9. Is there available numbers say from 10-99?
