Add Special Characters To Your Slides (PowerPoint 2002)

Have you ever wondered how to add a character such as a “©” or “™” to the text on a PowerPoint slide? Your first thought may be to look on the keyboard but you will not find any keys on the keyboard containing any of these characters.

These types of characters in Office are referred to as “Symbols.” You add a Symbol to text on a slide using the steps that are outlined below:

  1. Open your presentation.
  2. Place the cursor where you want to insert the Symbol.
  3. From the Insert menu, click Symbol.
  4. Click the appropriate Symbol from the list.
  5. Click Insert.
  6. Click Close. The Symbol will now appear on the slide.
