To insert one Zapf Dingbat or Symbol character:

1.
Choose the Content tool.

2.
Click in a line of text to create an insertion point.

3.
For a Zapf Dingbat character, hold down Ctrl and Shift and press "Z". For a Symbol character, use the Ctrl-Shift-Q shortcut.

4.
Press any key or keyboard combination to produce the desired Zapf Dingbat character . When you continue to type, the original, non-Dingbat typeface will reappear automatically.

Tip

Try making the Zapf dingbat, or any other dingbat, ever so slightly smaller than the surrounding text, or make it huge, so it functions like a graphic.
