Hi all


I'm wanting to type a registered trademark symbol (uppercase R in a circle) into a Word 2013 document which can be achieved by the keyboard combination Alt+Ctrl+R (according to online sources). Whenever I try to achieve this, the UAC/HP recovery Manager Dialogue box appears.

I am aware that this symbol can also be achieved via the 'insert-special characters' command, however I specifically want to insert this symbol with the keyboard.

I tried this on a different PC and it works.

Would anyone know of a alternative keyboard combination for the registered symbol?

Also according to online sources Alt+21 or Alt+0167 (on the numeric keypad) should generate a 'Section Symbol' (a pair of vertically overlapping S characters) - strangely this keyboard shortcut also doesn't produce anything on either PC; can anyone clarify as to what I'm doing wrong?


Thanks in advance.

alt + 169 (numlock on or off) gives ®

alt + 21 (numlock on or off) gives §


hold down alt when pressing numbers, works OK


alt + 0167 also works with numlock on - §
