Special characters, such as bullet symbols, or ®s and ©s, need to be used in dialog boxes on occasion. For instance, when using Find/Change, or when creating a nested paragraph style. In many cases, commonly used special characters will be listed in menus in the dialog boxes, but not always. The first example below shows where to access a commonly used special character in the Find/Change dialog box. The second example demonstrates how to use a special character as a marker when creating a nested style.
In this first example, the ™ symbol needs to be changed to a ® symbol within the body of the text.
In this second example, an ornamental character will be used as a marker to create a nested paragraph style.
