How do I add a section sign, or other special characters?

You can use the Insert menu to add some of the commonly used symbols, such as ©, ®, ™, the Euro symbol, section symbol, and paragraph symbol. For other symbols use the Microsoft Character Map, which is accessed from your Start button – AccessoriesCharacter Map. Here are the keystrokes for some of the commonly used symbols: 

 

  • Copyright symbol ©: hold down ALT, and using the NUMERIC Keypad type 0169
  • Registered trademark ®: hold down ALT, and using the NUMERIC Keypad type 0174
  • Trademark symbol ™: hold down ALT, and using the NUMERIC Keypad type 0153
  • Section symbol §: hold down ALT, and using the NUMERIC Keypad type 0167
  • Paragraph sign ¶: hold down ALT, and using the NUMERIC Keypad type 0182

Note: your NUMERIC Keypad must be 'locked' for this to work; also the four digit number sequences above begin with the number zero, not the letter O.

You can't add a special symbol directly into a page name or menu heading. Instead, you must copy the symbol from text.
