It all starts like this-

One day, I was building my house. I was almost done, I only wanted to add a sign(above a trapdoor) with an arrow pointing down,  saying 'Storage Room'. When I tried to make a down arrow, I realised that I didn't know how to. After that, I started pressing every single key, with shift, and without. After a few hours, I got to know how to make all sorts of arrows on signs. Then I thought: "Let me make a tutorial on this!!!" And here is the tutorial-

This is really simple. You need to know four keys, which are: '6' ','  '.'    'v/V'

I know. It might seem random, right? But it's not. If you shift-click on each of them(obviously excluding 'v and V') it becomes: '^' '<'    '>'     and v/V.

Do you now know what I'm talking about?

To make a right arrow, simply do this:  ------>      (The -'s can be any number.)

To make a left arrow, simply do this:  <---------     (The -'s can be any number.)

Now, the tricky bit. Since a sign has only 4 slots, this is the only way you can make a down and up arrow:

NOTE:Now you need to know the '\' key. It's above the 'ENTER' key on windows, but I don't know about a mac. It's probably the same. You have to shift-click the '\' button. It becomes '|' So now, the up arrow:


And the down arrow can be made with either a capital 'v' or a lowercase 'v'.

So that's it. Really simple, right!! Please diamond and subscribe if you liked this. Thanks!

is there any other way for there to be a better down arrow?
cause the 'v' isn't centered with the lines above it
