I just want to write the copy left symbol in a Word document – how do I do this? I am using Windows 7.


Admin note – the “copyleft” symbol can be seen here.

    I find it easiest to open the Character Map and locate:

    character U+0254 ? latin small letter open o

    Place in between a set of parenthesis [a la '(?)'] and you're all set :)

    Yap, CopyLeft is not part of UNICODE, so you will not found the character in windows.

    The copyleft character is not a Unicode symbol that's why you cannot find it. The best I could offer you is to create your own character.
    There is a tutorial here:

      As a footnote, following the tutorial at the link I posted I was able to create the copyleft symbol FROM the copyright symbol and save it to my character map in just a few minutes.
      But you need to read all of the tutorial as the section on copying symbols is towards the end.
      What I did was to copy and insert the copyright symbol, then rotate it 180 degrees.

        And Finally:
        If you save your copyleft to the first available location which should be E000 then in future to insert your character just hold down the Alt key and type 57344 on the number pad and it will insert itself into your text file.
