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 ▸ 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
If the chosen font allows it (this is the case for a vast majority), you only need to hold down the Alt key and enter the corresponding code of the character you want. Here are a few examples:
- ™ = Alt+0153
- © = Alt+0169
- ® = Alt+0174
- ° = Alt+0176
When a character is inserted this way in the chapter title, these symbols will be shown in the table of contents.
Note: many websites have lists of these Unicode numbers, called.
