Have you been pulling your hair out trying to figure out how to create the ridiculous little copyright symbol for your book? Have you stared at your keyboard for infinite amounts of time only to find that the only character similar is the @ symbol? Well have no fear Nicole is here! I am going to show you how unbelievably simple it is to create the © symbol for the copyright page of your masterpiece.
You don’t need any special programs or any specific gadgets. It’s not even a matter of copying and pasting. All you need is a standard computer keyboard. Just make sure you are using a keyboard that has a number pad. This is the numeric key pad to the right of your keyboard. NOTE: The number keys directly above your letter keys will not work for this!
Have you breathed a sigh of relief yet? Do you have the proper keyboard? Great! Now follow these easy steps…
1. Make sure your number lock key is turned on. This allows you to press the numbers on the num pad and actually achieve numbers.
2. Press and hold the ALT key. You can find this key on either side of the space bar key at the bottom of your keyboard.
3. While still pressing the ALT key, press 0169 on your num pad. REMEMBER, it has to be your num pad and NOT the number keys at the top of the keyboard!
4. Release the finger that’s pressing the ALT key
Hopefully you are now looking at your very own © symbol. ENJOY!
