How to make a paw print with the keyboard
Make paw print symbols with a sequence of symbols and letters on your keyboard. (paw prints image by Allyson Ricketts from Fotolia.com)

Computer users can create many objects by combining several keyboard letters, symbols and numbers in a sequence. These "drawings" range from simple emoticons like the smiley face, which looks like ":)," to more complex sequences that create realistic images of tigers, human faces and more. If you are an animal lover or are posting on a pet forum, include a paw print made from symbols on the keyboard as your signature. A keyboard paw print is universal, working for either cats or dogs.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Open a new document in a word processing program.

  2. 2

    Enter the symbol "<" followed by a capital "O." Hit "Enter."

    <O

  3. 3

    Type the symbol "<" again, followed by another capital "O." Hit the space bar once, then type two hyphens, which look like "--."

    <O <O --

  4. 4

    Press the space bar once, then type a capital "O." Hit the "Enter" key.

    <O <O -- O

  5. 5

    Insert the symbol "<" once more. Follow this with a capital "O" to finish your paw print.

    <O <O -- O <O

Tips and warnings

  • The "<" symbol can be substituted with a standard hyphen, or "-," to represent thinner claws like those on cats.
  • Substitute the "<" symbol with the "{" symbol and make the "O" letters lower case for a fatter paw print, like those from a bear.
  • Vary the number of rows to make paws with more claws or wider paw pads.
