The easiest way to insert a special character is to select it from the Special Characters dialog box:

  • go to Insert ▸ Special Character;
  • in the dialog that opens, all the existing characters in the current font are displayed;
  • select one character by clicking on it; it is now displayed enlarged in the right hand area of the dialog and is ready to be inserted as indicated at the bottom of the dialog;
  • if you click another character, it will be added to the list at the bottom of the dialog;
  • to remove a character from the list, click the Delete button;
  • when your selection is over, click OK;
  • to insert one character only, double-click the character; and
  • if you do not find the character you want, that means that it doesn’t exist in the current font. Try to find it in another font.
