I am using Windows XP Pro SP2 on my laptop. When I want to put copyright on it, I would normally use the ALT key and the numeric keypad to generate the ASCII code necessary for the symbol but it doesn't work with XP Pro SP2. Does anyone use this version of Windows and, if so, do you know how to get the copyright symbol in Photoshop?

Thanks and good day!

Mike

I have SP2 and you do it exactly the same way. On my laptop I have to hit a function key to use the keypad which is a secondary character on the other keys. Hope that helps.

Mike,

If you can't get Photoshop to generate the © symbol by using the ALT+0169 keystroke sequence on your laptop, then go ahead and generate it on your desktop, save them (various sizes, colors, etc.) as .psd files and copy 'em over to the laptop. Then, when you need one, just open it up as a new layer.

I use XP Pro SP2 on my desktop at school, and it works for me without problem using PS7.0.

I think the problem is that on your laptop you need a keypad to enter the numbers, you cannot use the number across the top. when you do it on the desktop you use the keypad to the right, you need an external one like that for a laptop.

Another way would be to click on Start ---> All Programs ---> Accessories--->
System Tools ---> Character Map. It has a dropdown list of fonts at the top and below that all the characters available for the specific font you choose. Click on the character you require, press select and then copy. Then go back to the application you are working in and paste.

Hi Andre,

It didn't work on my laptop, dern it anywhooo. I tried pressing ALL the keys at the same time but that didn't really do what I wanted it to (I'm reinstalling the OS as we speak....heheheh Just kidding). Seriously though, I'm not sure why I can't get it to work. Back to the drawing board.

Thanks for your idea. I'll try it on the other laptop and see if it works.

Good day!

Mike

I have done this before but it's a major PITA. I like the shortcut ALT-0169 that was available with PS7. I will just have to keep trying some other things and see what I come up with.

Thanks for your thoughts. Good day!

That may be. However, I know someone is able to do it on their laptop with the ALT-FN key combination. Mine doesn't do that but I suspect there might be a key sequence that will do it. I just need to keep searching.

Thanks for your thoughts and happy birthday!!

Mike

Hi Wayne,

Ya, I think I'm going to have to do that until I can find out for sure whether or not my laptop will allow me to invoke ASCII characters via ALT or FN keystrokes. I typically resize all of my photos for GG in a separate folder and so I'll just create a macro or just have a separate file that I can layer in. It's a pain but not too much I guess. Shortcuts are so much easier.

Thanks for your thoughts. Good day!

Mike
