How do I insert the trademark symbol?

This symbol does not exist in some fonts. The symbol exists in the Symbol, Serif and Sans-Serif fonts. To insert it:

  • put the cursor where you want to add the symbol;
  • select the Insert ▸ Special Characters menu;
  • in the dialog box that appears, choose Symbol in the font list;
  • the "trademark" symbol exists in a serif font (character 212, Unicode F0D4) or in a sans-serif font (character 228, Unicode F0E4); double click on the symbol you want.

Note : for fonts that are character rich, the TM symbol is classified in the Letterlike symbol subcategory, Unicode 2122

Alternative solution :

If the chosen font allows it (this is the case for a vast majority), you only need to maintained the Alt key pressed and enter the corresponding code of the character you want :

  • ™ = Alt+0153
  • © = Alt+0169
  • ® = Alt+0174
  • ° = Alt+0176

When inserted following this way in the chapter title, these symbols will be retrieved in the the table of content.

Note : a huge variety of websites propose these codes (ASCII codes, or ALT codes)
