Tech Tip for Writers #59: Shortkey for the Copyright Symbol

Tech Tips for Writers is an (almost) weekly post on overcoming Tech Dread. I’ll cover issues that friends, both real-time and virtual, have shared. Feel free to post a comment about a question you have. I’ll cover it in a future Tip.

Q: How do you create the copyright symbol in Word?

A: It’s easier than you’d think. Hold down the Alt key and press 0169. Use the keypad with the num lock on–don’t use the number row. I could not get this to work until someone pointed out that you must use the keypad. Duh.

This not only works in Office, but lots of other places, ©–like WordPress. Cool, huh?

    Oh my gosh, it worked, it worked, it worked! Yippee yi yi yay!
    I couldn’t figure out how people were doing that! Now I know!
    I also just learned how to make a heart:❤❤❤❤❤❤
    Is this just too cool or what? Playing with my computer!
    And to think, I am such an old dog, I was born in the last century!!!
    But I can still learn something. Roll over, Rover. Woof woof.

    Love you, Jacqui, thanks for all the very cool tips.
