WooHoo! Don's method works perfectly. Thanks! Is this method in the official Apple "User Manual" somewhere? It should be. It's a very easy setup and use style for me. Bodycalming's method might suit other people. In my case I'll set it up for Mom, who's used to the 'alt-key' way, and away we go! - JAM
Hi Don I have tried to get this to work but to no avail.
The only two I get to work are from the defaults already avilable ie. (c) gets me the copyright icon and (r) gets me the registered Icon no others seem to work ie (p) should give a lower case p in a circle but doesnt and using the Shift / Option 3 to replace < with the b Flat doesnt work
I am interested in using the Shift/ Option 3 to get the b Flat icon used in music.
Do you have ideas why this isnt working is there other settings needed?
Tom I have solved the problem. I needed to go into Edit>Substitutions>Text Replacement from the Edit Menu.
To get the result from within Word goto Preferences>Text Replacement and setup the Option / Shift 3 with the b Flat.
Problem seems that not all applications seem to work with the setup from within Apple preferences.
Tom thanks very much for your help and time
