Back on page 4 there's a list of Alt + numbers tricks to make symbols appear. I'm trying to put a copyright symbol in a Word (2007) document and it isn't working. Holding Alt while entering 0165 results in a "save document" box opening as soon as I hit the 1.

Any suggestions?

@squinney,
have you tried a simple copy/paste of the symbol itself?

@squinney,
If you don't want to learn the shortcuts for each of those, you can always just use a feature of Windows computers called "Character Map" (All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map) where you can select symbols and copy them to your clipboard.

Further to what Robert wrote... if you use Character Map often, you can create a shortcut on your desktop or taskbar.

@squinney,
I can't duplicate that on my Word 2007.

I can get "save as..." by pressing and releasing ALT, then pressing 1.

Do you press ALT, type the numbers, then release ALT?

@squinney,
You could use Word to assign a macro to insert the symbol. "Alt-C" for example.

Of course Word 2007 comes preconfigured to auto-correct "(c)" to " ©", which I had to fix because I normally want (c) to just be the letter "c" in parenthesis, not what Microsoft thinks I ought to want it to be.

@Ticomaya,
Tico's got your easy fix "(c)" automatically changes in word.

@OmSigDAVID,
If they had them then, they probably would have taught them. Thankfully, phonetic spelling never caught on.
