How to type OR on keyboard (mac)

Dear community,

I am trying to find the keyboard “shortcut” for this sign (which I now copied from the references page):


It is the sign for “OR”. I am currently using a Mac (High Sierra 10.13.4) with a german keyboard.

Help is much appreciated :).

I don‘t know for mac, But for german Keyboard it’s in General Strg+Alt+<. Though might be different for mac. Probably something like Ctrl+alt+<… Or there somewhere. :sweat_smile: just in case it‘s not working with +L…

thank you guys very much for the fast answers!

unfortunetally nothing has worked so far. I have pushed several options now up and down my keyboard but so far nothing … found the root and rubel signs though :D.

Try shift +/ or \ . This might be it. Or alt+7.
