Word perfect help

I am using WP ver 9 on W2k machine. I find myself needing to insert this symbol "" quite often. I use Insert, then symbol, then highlight the symbol. Is there a way to use a shortcut so I can insert this symbol with just using a few keys vs the mouse? Thanks.

That character is part of the extended character set.

All you need to do is type the numbers 0, 1, 6, 7 on the keypad while holding down the alt key. When you release the alt key, the symbol will appear.

There are hundreds of symbols like this. Alt 0133 creates an ellipsis ( or if that doesn't show up ...)

It sounds like a lot of keystrokes, but it's really a time saver, especially in your case, in which you frequently use the same character.
