It would help if I didn't have to cheat and cut-n-paste such symbols from another application like MS Word. We use TM a lot in some of of our videos.

Hello Evan. Are you saying you would like to be able to add them on top of your video as you are recording your screen? Can you give some more detail on how you are trying to use these symbols and what steps you are taking. I was a little confused by your question. Thanks and sorry for any confusion. I would like to try and duplicate what you are doing. Thanks for posting and have a great day.

Hi Fred,

We use these symbols in the Callout Text, especially the Trademark Symbol.

Right now I type them in Word, then cut'n'paste them in...which means I need extra applications open.

Also, we always want the TM symbol in Red, while our text is another color, so it's always an extra step to highlight the symbol, adjust it's font size, then adjust it's color.

Copyright (c) C with a circle around it, is another one we need.

It's gotten that I now go through the entire video as a last step, get the TM symbol right once, then paste it in everywhere from the clipboard. That has sped things up, but I still need to go get it from somewhere else for every project.

You can copy many such special characters to Clipboard using Window's Accessories/SystemTools/CharacterMap

That is all true. I'd just appreciate a table to Click & Pick Such Symbols while editing Callout Text,

And another option in the CallOut editing to make any Selected Text Super-Script (Raised) or Sub-script (Lowered) relative to other options.

Having a feature like the Symbol menu within MsWord would be a plus
