Unique characters that don’t exist on your computer keyboard can be inserted into your document by selecting the Ω Symbol option from the Insert ribbon. Special characters such as the degree (º) or trademark (™) symbols can easily be inserted from the Symbol dialog window. Other popular symbols include graphics, shapes, and foreign language characters, such as the (é) used in the word résumé, which is a different word than resume.
In the Symbol dialog window, different sets of symbols will appear when different Fonts or Subsets are selected from their respective list arrows. The Webdings or Wingdings fonts offer a variety of graphics that can be inserted into paragraphs or as bullet shapes.
