How to add the Copyright, Registered & Trademark symbols in InDesign
Hi there in this video, we're going to look at doing this when we zoom in, you can see this copyright symbol. It's the same principle for registered or trademark or any of the other symbols that you might not find on your keyboard. Say that you've got a dollar sign on your keyboard but you need pounds or euros or some other symbol. They're called glyphs. And we're going to go and do those now. Okay. So to add a glyph, let's grab our type tool. We're going to put ours on actually, we'll put it over here and we'll move it to this page. When we're finished, we're gonna drive a type box and this one's gonna be copyright. Copyrights and this has come from adobe stock 2019. And now we want to put in the copyright symbol. Okay, so we're going to go up to type and we're going to go down to glyphs. Glyphs is the word we use for any of the parts of the front. That's probably not on your keyboard. So you look down at your keyboard, there's no copyright button. There's an emphasis on button and do...
llar signs but no copyright. And what we're gonna do actually is select this type first. And make sure we're using we're gonna use Roboto for most of our body copy. Roboto. Where are you? And we'll use Roboto. There's a lot of Roberto's on here. I've got Roboto. I'm gonna use medium. You might be using regular. There's a regular version. So and he's roboto regular and now I want to put in the copyright symbol. So let's have our cursor flashing just after the nine find copyright in here and we're going to double click it. There's a registered trademark. There's copyright. It can be a little tough to find. Okay, you can play around with the size of this. Okay. To see if you can find them. Just scroll through until you find it. I had it. I've lost it. Where is it there? Just double click it and you can see it appears over here. It's the same for all of these symbols. If you find you don't have a copyright symbol, it's probably because you're using a font that doesn't have any of this extra lift data. Say we use that free font up here. What's called Alex Alex? Yeah, Alex brush? Yes. Can you see Alex brush? It does have a copyright symbol. Okay. Okay. That's more by luck me picking a font that has it Often. Some of those free fonts, that's what they'll do. They'll do the upper and lower case and some of the numbers but then they'll just ignore doing copyright and all those other things. That's the reason they're free and in this case both of these have it. So that is the glyphs panel. I'm going to close this down now and the next is kind of more of production. I'm going to go through and bring in an image. So not only glyphs stuff anymore, we're gonna build out this page here that you saw at the beginning of the video. So let's just go file place bring in herbs. How big is it going to be? Okay we're gonna have to play around with this because it's a weird format so I'm just gonna drag it out this sort of size, we're gonna zoom out quite a bit, especially when you're doing full background images, you're gonna have to zoom out so you can see the whole thing. Command shift on a Mac control shift on a Pc to scale it, want to scale it. So at least goes over the bleed. Okay. And then I'm going to tuck it in with my black arrow to the center there seeing a little bit more grab the corners, get into the bleed now if I left it like this. Okay and it's hanging over the bleed quite a bit. It doesn't matter. It'll get trimmed off when it goes out to pdf so it doesn't matter. This is just mainly a bit of designer O. C. D. Just to make sure it all lines up and looks nice in in design it changes nothing of the final output. What am I doing here is use the content grabber. Now at the beginning of this course I said I don't like content grabber and I'm using in this class because I just am. Okay, what I tend to do is just double click the image anywhere and it does the same thing, it jumps to content without this little target here. Content grabber. Maybe because of this course I am getting a little bit more used to the content grabber. Okay, so I might have to eat my words and say it's actually not as bad as I thought it was. Now, I'm just messing about. Let's move on. Okay. And what I want to do is grab my rectangle tool, I'm going to give it a fill of my green. Okay, we'll use dark green and I'm going to give it a stroke of none. Okay, I'm gonna draw box, I'll do it over here, grab my black hour and move it in. I find that often is more helpful. I'm gonna have the w key just to see where the edges are. Sometimes it's a little hard to see how because it needs to be big enough to hold this. Okay, what size is this? One of the things is that we have to play with the arrange because this guy is behind all of this. So I'm going to right click it before I move it across. Okay, so you might have to go to undo, go to arrange and go to bring to front, brings it in front of everything you there, select the type. I'm gonna make mine white. The top here paper. What size is it? 12 is too big. So I'm gonna turn it down to 10, know that 10 is a very common body copy size 12 is a bit big, and what am I doing? I'm just messing about. Now, skip on to the next video while I miss about Beautiful. Now I'm going to skip off to the next video. I'll see you there.
