    I know if you Option-Shift-K you will type the apple logo, but what key commands do you type to get the Bowen Knot symbol, or otherwise known as the Command Key Symbol.

    Thanks...

    It's not part of most font character sets but it can be found in the Webdings font, on the "z" key.

    I didn't know it was called the "Bowen Knot," but sure enough!

    One way is to activate Unicode Hex Input for your keyboard. Switch to that keyboard and then holding option key + 2318:



    Or just copy the above character.

    The other alternative method, if anyone is interested, is to open the Font Pane and select the Character viewer; under Symbols select Technical Symbols. Then click on the Bowen Knot symbol and Font Book will show you which character sets include the symbol. From there you can drag and drop or insert the character.
