Registered (R) symbol? Don't see it in Symbols and have not had success with keying shortcuts that work in Word, etc.

I would like to use the (R) Registered trademark symbol, but I cannot find it in the pre-loaded/included symbols.  TM and (C) are there, why not the (R)?  In Text I cannot use the common keyed shortcuts or codes.  Is there a way to do this without simply adding it as a picture?  Am I looking in the wrong place?  Seems this would be a common, standard symbol.

+1  from me.  Can't believe the standard KB shortcut codes aren't properly supported either, but they're not

Hi there

Are you able to copy and paste from the Windows Character Map application? If so, perhaps that's a workaround?

Press the Windows logo key and hold it and press R. Then release the keys. You should see the Run dialog. 

Type CHARMAP into the run dialog and press Enter. That should open the Character Map application. Locate the Registered symbol and copy it from Character Map, then see if you are able to paste it into your Callout or Text or whatever.

I frequently use this approach when I want to insert an interrobang.

Cheers... Rick :)

That worked, using Copy in the open CharMap!  Thank you!
