Creating A Proper Registered Trademark Symbol in MS-Word

The registered trademark symbol can be generated in Word by typing in (r). However, the resultant mark isn’t super-scripted. To make your registered trademark symbol as super scripted and make it look good, follow these steps:

  1. Highlight the registered trademark symbol that results after (r).
  2. Press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [+]. This will superscript the mark
  3. Now click the Office button and then choose Word Options.
  4. In the left hand column select Proofing and select the AutoCorrect Options button. Word will display the AutoCorrect tab of AutoCorrect dialog box.
  5. In the Replace box, type (r) and the with box should already be filled with the registered trade mark symbol in the first if you had selected it in step 1
  6. Make sure the Formatted Text option is selected
  7. Click Replace. Word will ask if you want to replace existing AutoCorrect definitions. Click Yes; the old definition will be replaced.
