    Hello all iPad users. Question i'm hoping some of you may answer. I'm trying to find a true copyright and trademark symbols on the iPad. No luck - has any of you found it? Much appreciated. :confused:

    Alt-169 on a PC, i dont see how you can do that on an iPad. HTML is © by the way.

    Cannot add symbol keyboard

    I had wrongly assumed it would just be a case of adding an additional symbols keyboard but that sadly is not the case. I would have thought they could put these commonly used symbols in, instead of duplicating the comma and full stop on each of the three standard keyboards they offer, alphabetical, numerical and symbols. I will leave it as a suggestion on the apple website. Might be worth waiting to see if this is something that turns up in iOS4.

    Copyright symbol

    I got around this by simply putting the symbols I want to use in Pages on iPad, into an email on my iMac. Then opened the email on iPad, copied and pasted! Simple! :p

    Now if only there was a way to disable a text that names a website from actually linking. So for example, if you type on the iPad, in the 'Document Setup' page: - which I have done as I put the copyright logo next to my website name. But it comes up as a link each time, and I don't want it to do that, just want it to sit there and look pretty as part of the page.:confused:

    try the Glyphboard web app - copy and paste the copyright or trademark (or other) symbols from there, works offline too.

    see my post in another thread here

    I haven't specifically found the copyright symbol, but I DO know that if you tap and hold the various keys, you get special symbols. I'll try looking later.

    I also know that on the iPhone, you can get both the Copyright and Trademark symbol by activating the emoji keyboard. I don't know if that is even possible with the iPad.

    nope, copyright and trademark symbols do not seem available with the regular tap-and-hold keyboard shortcuts on iPad for other symbols, like accented characters.

    and they're also missing from the iPad's emoji set

    I'm pretty sure that you can do this with and iPad paired with a bluetooth keyboard using Option-g. (I don't know about the ipad specific keyboard dock.)

    yes, I can confirm using the Bluetooth keyboard you can type the copyright symbol on the iPad with option-g

    Two iPad App's Cymbol is better, iEmoji emoticon alternate is out there

    Not true!

    Some basic emoticon iEmoji iPad App's will do a true copyright ©, as a single character entry.

    Cymbol on iPad is out there, reviews are there indicate it is more powerful as an editor.

    Okay, iPad does support superscripts and subscripts, plus other items via that Cymbol App in the App Store.

    Spread the word to help end the frustration of other writers!

    Also, you can type in other special characters with the hex to Unicode conversion, giving access to thousands or other symbols and foreign language sets.

    So just Google for the hexadecimal and highlight inside of the snippet editor environment of Cymbol App with copy all button, paste into your other editor or iWork App, Keynote, Numbers or Pages.

    Note, the Apple Volume Purchase Program for buying iPad App's includes this one too. So as a companion for Keynote, Numbers and Pages, it is a logical combination.

    © <-- copyright symbol

    This was posted from my iPad


    Forgot you wanted trademark too

    Here are some more

    ® 

    EDIT again:

    btw I did this by



    EDIT one more time:

    Alternatively you can use the shortcuts for something like

    copywrite = ©


    trademark = ™

    or even

    : ) = &#55357;&#56842;
