Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is Symbol Finder & Copy?
Symbols are a key component of nearly every website, and searching for them can be time-consuming. The Symbol Finder is an easy-to-use and multi-browser extension that aids with finding and copying any specified HTML5 icon from the toolbar popup UI. Simply open the UI and choose a different category at the top by using the default buttons (please click on the small triangle button in the upper left corner to see the default buttons). To search for a symbol, you may use the search bar. Alternatively, if you’d like to see matched symbols, type in a query term. To capture an icon with the UI’s bottom panel open, click on each individual icon to view information at the bottom of the screen and then copy it to the clipboard. There are over 65000 icons to select from. Please keep in mind that when you enter characters into the search box (while typing), icons will appear on-the-fly (fuzzy search).
2. How do I use the Symbol Finder & Copy add-on?
If you don’t see all of your desired symbols, try enabling the Popup UI by clicking on the toolbar symbol after you’ve installed the plugin in your browser. The initial icons are arrows, which appear when you first open the UI. To see related icons, click a category at the top of the page. There’s also a triangle button that will display all default buttons next to the input field. If you want to look for a term that contains a certain word, put it in and press enter in the input field; if your term matches any symbol, a list of icons will be displayed inside this UI; and if it doesn’t match anything, nothing will appear. This is a wonderful approach to get information on a new piece of equipment, or even see what you already have without having to go into your computer and search for it. It’s also beneficial if you’ve forgotten the name of a product or service that was launched two years ago but are looking for it again because many things change so rapidly these days. While searching, simply input keywords into the search bar, and icons will display in the user interface, whether they match part or all of the term. To check for all symbols that are available, press the find button without entering any keywords or selecting the drop-down list and then select all items from the list. To copy an icon, simply click on it inside the user interface. The addon is now loaded; to see the icons, click on the drop-down list and then choose any item with the – range – keyword (i.e., range 1000-2000). Please keep in mind that loading all 65000 icons may take a long time because of their size and need huge memory. This function should only be used if you want to view all extra symbols.
3. How can I get the source code for Symbol Finder & Copy?
To get the source code for this extension from Google Chrome Web Store, use. With this add-on, you may either download the source code as a ZIP or CRX file to your computer. If you wish to obtain the source code for Firefox plugins from the Firefox Add-ons website, open the firefox download link (if available) in Firefox and then right-click on the – Add to Firefox – button and select – Save Link As… After that, save the file in XPI format in your desired folder. You can also rename the XPI file type to RAR or ZIP. Some extensions may include a GitHub repository address, which you may use to get the source code. However, it might not be the most recent version of the extension. As a result, obtaining source code from official web stores is your best choice since it always offers you with the most up-to-date version of the add-on.
4. How can I get a symbol from one program and paste it into another?
To duplicate icons, simply click on any icon within the toolbar’s popup UI; the icon will be copied to the clipboard immediately after being selected. Alternatively, you may choose any icon and then press Ctrl+C on your keyboard or right-click and select Copy.
5. How do I use the extra icons in the user interface?
There is a button to load more symbols within the UI (upper part). All 65,000 icons will be loaded into the UI after you click this button. If you need to view all icons, utilize this feature; however, if you just want to utilize the most common ones available in the UI, don’t.
6. Why can’t I find certain symbols using the search function?
Unfortunately, not all of the HTML symbols have names, which makes it impossible to discover them all with a search term. You may sometimes need to scroll through all of the icons in order to discover the icon you’re looking for.
7. Why do some symbols not display properly in the user interface?
Some fonts are not installed in some operating systems or browsers. HTML5 symbols require specific typefaces to display correctly. As a result, if you can’t see an icon(s), the problem is at the operating system level and nothing is wrong with the add-on.
8. Why is the number of categories limited in the Symbolic Finder & Copy add-on, as opposed to other emoji finder add-ons?
Symbols, similar to names, do not fall into any particular categories; thus they are usually classified only in a few. The best method to discover symbols is to go through all icons in the interface. To view all symbols, open the drop-down menu and select all.
