To type the copyright symbol simply hold down the option key and press the ‘g’ key. Option-g will type the copyright symbol in any program. This works in Mail, Pages, Microsoft Word, Keynote etc.

You can use the option key to create all kind of special characters. For example:

Option 2 = the trademark symbol  ™

Option 8 = a simple bullet  •

Option K = the temperature degrees symbol  ˚

Option G = Copyright Symbol ©

    There is no Option key on a MacBook Air – this drives me nuts… “To type the copyright symbol simply hold down the option key and press the ‘g’ key. Option-g will type the copyright symbol in any program.” Really? No.

      The air keyboard I just looked at has 2 option keys. From the space bar it is two keys to the left or right. To the right or left, one key from the command key.

    Are you sure? I have a MacBook Air and it has an option key. It’s between the control key and the Apple key to the left of the spacebar.
