Inserting Symbols and Special Characters
Depending on the nature of the document you create, you might occasionally need to
insert characters and symbols that aren’t normally available on your keyboard. Perhaps
you need to insert a copyright symbol, for example, or add words with accent marks. Word
2010 provides a library of special characters to help you in these circumstances.
Inserting Symbols
The Symbol list and the Symbol dialog box, both found in the Symbols group on the Insert
tab, work together to take care of your symbol and special character needs. The dynamic
Symbol list updates as you use symbols in the list or from the Symbol dialog box; the last
symbol you insert is first in the list. That way, symbols you use frequently are available to
you in the Symbols list.
