alpha symbol font?

Hi there,

Sounds like a bizarre post but I'm trying to find the Greek symbol for alpha in after effects?

I am editing a presentation for a short science video

So far I have found it under the Symbols font ...however they are not happy with the font style.

Basically they want the alpha symbol but in the Arial font

any help would be very much appreciated :P

working on Mac OSX

Ά ά α - The ariel versions of alpha.

You can search for these on a PC by going to your Start Menu > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map. Click advanced view and type in "alpha" for in the "search for". If there is an alpha it will show up and you can select and copy it, if not, move on the the next font.

Not many fonts carry greek symbols, but Times New Roman has a very large selection.
