    The trademark symbol is Option+2 and the copyright symbol is Option+g.
    The way to find these out is to use the Keyboard Viewer. Go into System Preferences, Keyboard, Keyboard and turn on Show Character and Keyboard Viewers. Then you’ll see a new menu item appear in the upper right. Use that to access the Keyboard Viewer. While looking at it, you can hold down Option, or Shift, or Option+Shift and see what characters are generated by different keys.
    To go beyond just these characters, use the Character Viewer. You can insert thousands of different characters with it, not just the few dozen you can create with the keyboard.

    Yes, Keyboard Viewer is helpful, but I have a problem with it. I enlarged it and now I can’t get it to go back to the original size. It is so large it covers my screen. Clicking on the Green Dot does nothing. Any ideas Gary?

      Grab the bottom right corner of it and drag it up and to the left.

        Thanks Gary, the two headed arrows that generally show didn’t happen but it did shrink to a tiny size. No happy medium I guess.

        P.S. I often show your videos in classes for seniors in our computer lab much to their appreciation. Thanks for all your hard work and making it available to all.
