How to Insert a Registered Trademark Symbol on a Mac

A symbol with a capital "R" inside a circle represents a registered trademark that is legally registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. When creating a document, you may wish to place a registered trademark symbol next to a registered trademark within the document. If you are using a PC, you must hold down the "Alt" key and type the specific key combination of 0,1,7 and 4. This process, however, is slightly different when you are using a Mac as the Mac keyboard does not support "Alt" key codes like the PC does.
